If 5% of registered members object, we will arrange a vote. If you wish to object, please e-mail email@example.com to register your objection before 12:00 UTC on May 16th 2022.
I have a question about this mechanism. How can we (those who don’t have access to the board@gnome mailbox) know how many objections have been raised?
If 12:00 UTC arrives and somebody posts “Too bad; not enough objections,” is that just to be accepted on faith?
And, perhaps more pertinently for practical debate, how can we know where the membership’s opinion stands before the magic moment? I.e., if there are people on the fence whose objection-mail might tip the balance and trigger an actual public vote, then knowing that fact before the carriage turns into a pumpkin could well have a major impact on their decision whether or not to send that private email.
