Subject Re: Clarification/typo on release votes (Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Tamaya 0.3-incubating)
Date Fri, 16 Jun 2017 04:07:13 GMT
The third condition is implied by the second one.

I do not believe the second condition is implied by "Votes on whether
a package is ready to be released use majority approval -- i.e., at
least three PMC members must vote affirmatively for release, and there
must be more positive than negative votes." or "Refers to a vote
(sense 1) which has completed with at least three binding +1 votes and
more +1 votes than -1 votes. ( I.e. , a simple majority with a minimum
quorum of three positive votes.) Note that in votes requiring majority
approval a -1 vote is simply a vote against, not a veto. Compare
Consensus Approval. See also the description of the voting process."
