Thanks to everyone for getting their votes on this vexed issue in! I
wish I could say that the results were decisive as a result of this
exercise in enhanced democracy, but sadly they were not.
In first place, there were four votes for <layer> and three for
<changeSet>. and one for each of <stratum> <phase> and <revCampaign>.
Four out of 10 is not a viable majority, so I tried redistributing the
second and third place votes of those who had voted for the last three
names. This increased the numbers for <layer> slightly (to 5), but
reintroduced some new minority candidates.
The underlying problem is that we have too few voters and too many
candidates, obviously. There are quite a few people who like <changeSet>
and probably a few more who like <layer>. In the interests of moving on,
I think we should adopt <layer> until such time as a better idea comes
along, and would like Council's approval to make that proposal in a
document to be circulated as a response to the workgroup.
Is that acceptable?
Keen watchers of sourceforge etc. will have noticed that there was a
rash of implementation activity just before the mayday break. I expect
to resume that shortly: just a few other chores to clear away first...
