Subject Re: [VOTE] Should voting +1 on a release imply that the vote intends to help support the release?
Date Tue, 15 Jan 2008 09:24:20 GMT
Following your argument, if you only +1 releases which are going to be 
supported, yet you don't know if any release will be supported, surely you 
can only +1 releases you are willing to support?

I think the obligation is at the time of the vote and not a moral obligation 
until death. You have an obligation to vote for a release if you, at the 
time, intend to help support it in the wild, otherwise you're basically 
saying "let it out, and let some other sucker handle the fall out".
