Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache OpenOffice Community Graduation Vote
Date Sat, 25 Aug 2012 13:45:33 GMT
I submit that this sub-thread has reached the end of its useful lifetime.

The IPMC's view of binaries is clear, and the IPMC believes that its
views reflect the will of the board. 'Official' binaries, like
binaries signed with a certificate with the Foundation's name on it,
are not currently permissible. Roughly, the same questions of how the
voting members of a PMC could meaningfully check a release before
voting apply to both questions.

If you want to engage with the board on this, by all means, there is
board@. It's a complete waste of time to argue on this list and this
thread about the Foundation's governance.

In the mean time, AOO releases can continue to have 'convenience
binaries', sans signatures.

Since this is a community vote thread (!) and not an IPMC vote thread,
I further submit that all of us IPMC members should get out of the way
and leave it to the mentors to sort out the disconnect between
Foundation policy and AOO needs/wants. To quote the mentors from a
previous conversation, if people want to join in the process, they
should become mentors and fully engage.

Of course, a discussion thread started here to solicit the IPMC's
opinion on graduation would be another matter entirely.
