Subject Fwd: [DISCUSS] incubator voting process
Date Mon, 13 Nov 2006 21:49:00 GMT
Hey folks,

Some of you may have seen this discussion on the incubator general
list about how podlings should vote for releases.  I just thought I
should probably forward my response to the discussion since we're
talking about releases lately.  Let me know if I need to clarify
anything or if you have questions/concerns about my view on how this
should be done.
