Sorry, I jumped the gun (and I didn't even specify how long the voting
period would be). I made assumptions about the people who responded to
the original discussion and IRC discussion. Btw, I should have provided
a link for the IRC:
starting at 12:45, ending 15:31. The discussion did include a bunch of
other stuff as well.

I don't think we have settled on a voting system for us yet, but I
didn't have Apache in mind, except that we have the +1/-1/neutral
options. Although it seems like with the added IRC discussion the -1s
acted like vetos and 3 emerged as the one with no vetos.
Want to start a new thread on OSAF voting system?

Except the options given for 4 where not the same, so there would be 1
vote for 4a and 1 vote for 4b.
All the email+IRC discussion implied to me that options 1), 2) and the
custom options for 4) so far would be strongly opposed by at least one
person, and while nobody really loved 3) everybody could live with it.
Let's say the book isn't closed on this until noon tomorrow, so feel
free to cast your vote still. Seems to me 3) and 4) are the remaining
viable candidates, with the caveat that you'd need to suggest something
new for 4) that hasn't been suggested before. (Or if we don't have vetos
then all options are still open.)
PS. And I think we'd need a little addition to 3) as well. If the
releases are going to be identical except that one is built in debug
mode the releases should be called maybe "debug" and "end-user" release,
or something along those lines to clarify the difference.
