Subject [DISCUSS] [VOTE] Release Apache OpenOffice 3.4 (incubating) RC1
Date Sat, 21 Apr 2012 18:33:21 GMT
Some formalities:

 1. Please do not discuss the voting on the [VOTE] thread.  It makes it more difficult to
track the individual votes.  Use a [DISCUSS][VOTE] thread instead.

 2. Please cast all votes on ooo-dev@  Cross-posting to ooo-private
by non-PPMC members simply makes work for the ooo-private moderators and increases the chance
that the vote is not tabulated (binding or not).  Also, to be safe, the conductor of the vote
now needs to merge votes from both lists, then eliminate any duplicates.  (Multiple votes
are allowed.  The latest vote from the same individual before closing of the vote will be
the one used.)

 3. PPMC Members: Please do not vote on ooo-private.  It makes the tabulation too complicated
and it denies visibility to the project of how the vote is proceeding.

Finally, note that -1 votes are not vetoes, but the release manager(s) can withdraw a candidate
at any time.  For incubators, the official release will be determined by binding votes of
the Incubator PMC (IPMC).  This [VOTE] works the same way.  The vote carries by simple majority
of binding votes so long as there are at least three binding +1s.  If there are any -1s, the
reasons and alternatives proposed with those votes may lead to a reassessment by others, or
not.  The ideal is to reach consensus.

 - Dennis
