Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduation of Apache Spark from the Incubator
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2014 17:49:54 GMT
This got me to thinking.

If git is the working tool of the team, and actions from the git site are automatically forwarded
to dev, how about putting release votes on git?

Could an action item be created in git by the release manager to release, say, version 3.4.5
of the code? Voting could be done by comments from the community. After the time expires,
votes are tallied. Only PMC votes binding, of course.

As long as dev@ contains all the feedback from voters, I'd be satisfied that the "vote on
the release" requirement was satisfied.
