Subject Re: [RESULT][VOTE] Apache Gearpump (incubating) 0.8.1-RC3
Date Mon, 18 Jul 2016 15:19:59 GMT
A RESULT can still be given when the vote is cancelled. To my mind, the
major purpose of the CANCEL is to shorten the vote period so that the next
vote on the next iteration of the release candidate can start immediately
without confusion.
