Hmm, depends on which paragraph of HACKING you read:
Voting +1 on a change doesn't just mean you approve of it in principle.
It means you have thoroughly reviewed the change, and find it correct
and as nondisruptive as possible. When it is committed to the release
branch, the log message will include the names of all who voted for
it, as well as the original author and the person making the commit.
All of these people are considered equally answerable for bugs.
If you've reviewed a patch, and like it but have some reservations,
you can write "+1 (concept)" and then ask questions on the list about
your concerns. You can write "+0" if you like the general idea but
haven't reviewed the patch carefully. Neither of these votes counts
toward the total, but they can be useful for tracking down people who
are following the change and might be willing to spend more time on
These two paragraphs seem to contradict. Why would a vote with
reservations be "+1 (concept)" when +1 means you throughly approve of
the change. That doesn't make any sense. +0 makes far more sense for
that. And I guess I'm missing the reservations or request for more
information that follows up the "+1 (concept)" vote here.
I think our historical usage has been more of +1, +0, -0, -1. But maybe
I just never noticed the "+1 (concept) votes".
