Re: [steering-discuss] FYI: Apache Incubator is now voting


Hi :)
Thanks :)  The voting system sounds interesting.  I like the idea of 
"non-binding" votes for people that might not have joined as proper members yet 
but might have significant interest in the Apache Foundation.
Thanks and regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [steering-discuss] FYI: Apache Incubator is now voting

Hi all,

I just wanted to bring an "FYI" that the Apache Incubator has begun
its voting process on accepting the OO.o proposal to become a
"podling" within the Incubator. At the moment, it appears to be
passing by a huge margin, with only two dissenting votes[1] at this
time.

The Apache process recognizes two types of votes:

* "binding" votes are from those who have a recognized ability to
participate in the process. These votes are the ones which will be
counted.

* "non-binding" votes are from other participants in the conversation.
Their "votes" are allowed as a measure and gauge over the broader
community opinion, even though they will not actually be tallied in
the final ballot.

If you wish to make your voice heard, then I would encourage you to
respond to the [VOTE] thread on general@incubator.apache.org (I would
think gmane[2] is your best way to respond to the thread without
having to actually subscribe).

Cheers,
-g

[1] the dissenting votes are non-binding, fwiw

ps. my advance apologies if you feel this post is inappropriate for
these two TDF forums. I felt obliged to include you all in this
process, though I do understand that it may not be welcome.
