Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Stepping down as release manager
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2017 17:33:14 GMT
As Billie says, our bylaws don’t require a vote to assign a release manager.
However, an RM certainly needs the support of the community to be effective,
so all these +1’s are very much appreciated! :-)
Thanks,

    Not everything needs to be voted upon. The ASF guidelines and Metron's
    bylaws specify which actions require a vote. Other types of things, like
    choosing a release manager, can be approved by lazy consensus. I just
    noticed that Metron's bylaws have slightly different definitions for the
    approval types than the ASF typically uses. I'd recommend changing these to
    the standard ASF definitions. Specifically, Lazy Consensus does not require
    a vote and thus no +1s are needed (https://www.apache.org/
    foundation/glossary.html#LazyConsensus) and Lazy Majority and Lazy 2/3
    Majority should be called Majority (https://www.apache.org/
    foundation/glossary.html#MajorityApproval) and 2/3 Majority.
