Subject RE: Reminder on Voting
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2011 02:30:56 GMT
I see that "vote" cast in the subject of the e-mail.  I smiled when I saw it, not thinking
about how it may fail to be counted. 

I also note that the original [VOTE] message does not say much about the rules for how votes
should be replies to the original [VOTE] thread.  So there's not much allowance for the fact
that not everyone on ooo-dev is up on the protocol for conducting votes on Apache lists.

I'm happy to leave it to the initiator of the [VOTE] to determine whether that non-binding
vote is tallied or not, let alone even noticed.  (I do my tallies by sorting on subject and
I would never see that one.  But that's only how I do it.  I also flag them as I see them
come in, but the sorting wouldn't catch that one.)

 - Dennis

Well, maybe. We already have one email on a thread of its own, with 
subject "a) Apache" ... --/tj/
