I only just saw this - so basically this vote was effectively
concluded 52minutes after the test build was announced and vote called
(since thats when the 3rd +1 binding vote was received).

I am -1 to holding votes in this way (i.e. as soon as I get 3 +1s) and
I am -1 to one person arbiatrily changing the usual procedure on the
fly at the point a vote is called. IMO all votes should be for a fixed
period of time (usually 72 hours). In this case I don't see why the
PMC could not have been consulted about reducing the period of time on
this vote - since AFAIK this issue has been ongoing for more than a
couple of weeks.
