Re: [VOTE] Branching Change for 4.0 Freeze


I'm not interested in sparking a discussion on this, because a) it has
already happened and b) it seems I am in a minority. But thought I should
at least include the rationale for my vote:
* This proposal goes against the "scratch an itch" philosophy of making
contributions to an Apache project and IMO will discourage contributions
that are casual or new.
* It feels dictatorial. IMO the right way to do this would be for
impassioned committers to -1 any patch that goes against elements a, b, or
c of what this vote is for.
