participate in the process. These votes are the ones which will be
* "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

If you wish to make your voice heard, then I would encourage you to
respond to the [VOTE] thread on firstname.lastname@example.org (I would
think gmane is your best way to respond to the thread without
having to actually subscribe).
 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.
Speaking solely for myself, Greg, your post was not at all unwelcome ; on
the contrary, thanks for keeping us informed as to what is going on !...
