Actually, what gets committed just depends on whether some committer
gets time to review and apply the patch. Were there ever irresolvable
disagreement on whether to apply some change, then the committers
would vote (using the same +1/-1 notation)... But that's never
happened, and I don't expect it to. (It's been used to resolve
interface questions a couple of times, but serious coding or design
questions have never failed to reach consensus.)
