Subject Re: [VOTE][DISCUSS] Acceptance of the Proposal
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2011 16:53:42 GMT
When voting for the proposal are we (or are we not) voting for "Initial Committers / PMC"

If I am not mistaken that formality needs to occur on ooo-private as a separate process. I
have started a [DISCUSS] thread there. Normally a DISCUSS / VOTE on ooo-private is NOT discussed
in public. I think an exception should be made here to assure the community that the whole
of the proposal is being fairly "processed" by the PPMC.
