Note that in some/most (apache) communities the voting is not democratic
but instead means:

+1	in favour -and- I will spend time to make
	it happen and/or am comitted to help fixing
	it if it all goes wrong.

+0	In favour - but not going to spend time on it.

0	not going to spend cycles on it - seems okish.

-0	bad idea - but not going to spend cycles; please
	sit on your own blisters. But I am not going to
	do a 'told you so' later :-)

-1	veto - and I am committed to soon post a
	detailed (technical) reason -and- I am committed
	to come with an alternative proposoal within
	a few days. Which I back and will make happen if
	it gets selected.

Or in other words - a lot of skin in the game :-). And votes of people who
do not honour the social contract loose their shine and gradually end up
beeing ignored.
