This leaves me wondering a couple of things.

1) _Why_ is a -1 not the correct way to contest a change late in the
release cycle? What makes it necessary to allow other methods to do
the same thing?

2) Does this change the old policy, "if it didn't happen on the list,
it didn't happen"? By saying "any forum" you seem to include IRC
channels and who knows what else.
