To all devs:
Proposal for a permanent change to our backport rules :
* For non-LTS releases, each backport nomination only requires one +1
vote (instead of three).
Specific diff to the text of :
- A change needs three +1 votes from full committers (or partial
committers for the involved areas), and no vetoes, to go into A.B.x.
+ A change needs three +1 votes (for an LTS release line) or one +1 vote
(for a non-LTS release line) from full committers (or partial committers
for the involved areas), and no vetoes, to go into A.B.x.
- (If a change affects the build system, however, it is considered a
core change, and needs three +1's.)
+ (If a change affects the build system, however, it is considered a
core change, and so for an LTS release line needs three +1's.)
