RE: [cross-project-issues-dev] Galileo Must Do's: How much Rules?- Results are in

Hi Thomas,
I mostly refrained from interpreting the results, and just mentioned my personal impression. I think that just looking at the poll outcome, everybody can get a good impression themselves. And Ed -- I don't think the poll polarizes, because everybody had multiple votes and those who voted extreme, also had votes in the middle.
Surely, a sample of 35 people is not large enough (but then the people who did participate are prominent people from across a good sample of Galileo projects). Surely, my questions were not specifically worded towards Galileo (since from an AC point of view, I was more interested in the general question).
But at any rate, if your option (b) is indeed true and people didn't care to participate, then for me this is a signal that the PC is doing the right thing by not making the train a Community event with everybody engaged in discussions -- since nobody would want to spend time on that anyways. What the PC is doing instead, is deciding this at the PMC level, which is certainly more efficient than the democratic Community variant.
Sounds rude? You can get engaged via your PMC's, and it's likely more efficient than discussing this over and over by E-Mail.

35 people participated, the majority voting for "Guidance" through rules and "Ok to have rules since we all gain from the train". Looks like the PC is doing the right thing after all. Thanks, Planning Council!
Maybe that is jumping to conclusions? Don't forget that there are over 900 committers that didn't vote at all. What does that mean?

a) They didn't vote because they all agree with PMC's decisions
b) They didn't vote because they want to spend as little time as possible on rules and bureaucracy

My guess would be the latter for the most part and that the 35 that did vote have an interest in this that is way above average.

Just my 0.02$
