Subject RE: [VOTE][DISCUSS] Acceptance of the Proposal
Date Tue, 18 Oct 2011 18:56:27 GMT
Dave, thanks for your questions.

My reading as the initiator of the [VOTE]:

The vote is solely on the acceptance of the proposal.  The proposal is the 
text so identified on the OOOUSER web page.

Actions that are called for require their own execution, including further 
discussion as needed.  Finally, personnel matters are not discussed here or 
voted on here ever, as far as I know.  In any case, it is not part of this 
vote.  I recommend that no such discussion occur here.

Likewise, there is nothing in the statement of the vote that suggests who will 
do what, regardless of table-talk to that effect.  It is not part of the 
ballot measure.

 - Dennis

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.
