I'm still trying to figure out why ticket 273 was voted down. At the
last meeting, I would say there was a consensus that the non blocking
collective I/O ticket (273) was ready to be voted in. Nobody expressed
an objection after me removing the shared file pointer nbc routines and
re-reading the draft. All the I/O chapter committee reviewed the draft
and commented on the ticket that it looks good.
At the Japan meeting, we get 8 yes , 2 nos, and 6 abstains, which under
the new rules marks the ticket as failed.
None from our organization could attend the meeting to really understand
what the 2 no votes were for, and why 6 organizations abstained.
If the abstains are because people don't care or don't understand what
is being voted on or missed the vote (which are the reasons why I vote
abstain), then the new voting rule doesn't really make sense. If the
abstains where for something else, then the votes should be NO. So could
someone mention why this was voted down?
