Subject Re: [DISCUSS] eliminate vetoes on personnel votes
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2012 01:12:53 GMT

I've never liked vetoes for this. One person can hold an entire PMC hostage
simply for disliking someone (or worse: subtle corporate concerns masked
otherwise). People have said in the past, "you should have veto so you're
not forced to work with somebody you dislike." I respond, "grow up. we work
with annoying people all the time, and the majority says they *can* work
with this person."
