-1 ... Veto on the basis of project bylaws. Propose a revision for voting.

I've totally lost you. Jim describes creating a branch, how is this related to voting?

I am not Bill, but it is likely a reference to the fact that you can veto code changes, not community/workflow changes. I see Jim's proposal as the latter, so I'm not sure why the attempted veto. The codebase itself isn't being changed from what I can gather, only the workflow is.

With regards,
Daniel.


Rather than a wall of text, can you propose corrections to the above?

This is an attempt to discard the work of all committers who were told their code wouldn't be included until the next version major.minor. Complete disenfranchisement via a pocket veto of all changes.

Again, totally lost you. I can’t see anything in Jim’s proposal that suggests we throw away code or work from trunk, and I would not allow that to happen either. Have you mixed up the messages you’ve replied to?

Regards,
Graham
