The planet had not even rotated half-way around. The "vote"
started at 23:30 last night Australian time. I got my mail
early on Sunday morning and some are saying that it is over.

Sorry, i trust that my next statement is not too disruptive,
but it is important to get things straight early, hence ...

I think that this vote may not have followed decent procedures.

We were asked on a Friday to wait until the subscriber base
of "community" had built and fade out on "reorg". One of the
first threads on the list is a vote!

I was under the impression that a clear [PROPOSAL} is discussed
first to formulate the intent of a vote. The options that are
arrived at during that thread are then clearly stated by the
originator of the proposal in a subsequent ]VOTE] thread.

This vote was too rushed. I see people voting +1 on two
options, and others trying to re-write the options to be
clearer on what is being voted for.

On a related issue, i am having trouble finding any docs
about voting procedures for the Apache community.
