Subject Re: [DISCUSS] [VOTE] Jukka Zitting for IPMC Chair (was Re: NOMINATIONS for Incubator PMC Chair)
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2012 17:29:52 GMT
I have observations

(1) Why is the IPMC different from other PMCs and holding a personnel VOTEs  on a public ML?

(2) Why is there such a hurry to call a [VOTE] without a prior [DISCUSS]?

(3) Why can't Chris start new threads by using New Message rather than a reply to a prior
thread with a subject change?

Regards,
Dave
