RE: [dsdp-pmc] Clarification: Please Vote on CQ 2761, CQ 2762 AND CQ 2769

Hi all,
I find it tiresome trying to get unanimous PMC approval on the per-CQ level.
If I'm not mistaken, the "PMC Approved" on CQs is not in order to assess
possibility of any IP problems -- it is merely to assess whether we actually
want some functionality on the project, or not. Primary reason for "not
wanting" some functionality is if we know of duplicate similar functionality
That being said, my understanding is that the "PMC Approved" is on a
per-functionality granularity, and who approved the "JM Unit Library"
would implicitly also approve the "1.0 and 1.1" versions. Also note that
in case somebody finds an issue after the fact, it is still possible to
revoke things (it's long enough until something gets actually shipped,
and the IP Team does a good job too).
Other PMC's allow a single PMC member to approve CQ's on behalf of
the entire PMC. Trying to get unanimous consent slows things down
and is work for each of us. Do we all really want this?
+1 on CQ 2769 under the old policy,
and I request a change of policy to allow single PMC members approve
on behalf of the entire PMC, provided that they (a) seek assistance of
other PMC members if they are not technological lead in some area,
and (b) inform the PMC by E-Mail about their rationale of approving.

There is some confusion around those CQ's,  the initial CQ 2761 was covering TWO Jar files, and the Legal team advised to create separate CQ's for each Jar file.
The new CQ 2769 is for the second library.

Please vote for the missing CQ's.

Here is a link to the IP-Zilla entries:
