Voting is open for at least 72h. Any measure is effectively dead with a -1 vote, so if a -1 comes in a minute after voting starts there's really no point in waiting any longer. The value of a 72h window is that it affords more time for dissenters. The voting process is intended to emphasize and produce consensus, which is the most important aspect.


Committer nomination

The nomination of a committer requires a vote: a majority of +1 is required and no -1. The vote must happen privately on the cas-pmc mailing list.


Communication happens primarily by public mailing lists. Exceptions are issues that require discretion or confidentiality; private lists are the appropriate channel in those situations. Communication may also occur through other appropriate channels as needed, such as video/voice conference calls, IRC and IM. No official decisions may be made via any means other than voting on a project mailing list; if it didn't happen on list, it didn't happen. Discussions that occur in side channels such as IRC and IM SHOULD be summarized on a mailing list when they may impact decision making processes. The commitee SHOULD make an effort to meet periodically via a high-bandwidth synchronous medium such as in-person meetings at conferences or voice/video conference calls.
