[OpenLayers-Dev] RFC: Archiving PSC Votes

I agree that this is a minor issue, and I agree that the information  
is available by searching the archives.  However, searching the  
archives to get a summary of what was voted on is neither trivial nor  
convenient for most people.  For me, I would find it difficult to  
figure out what the PSC had voted on and what the result was.

Should we care?  I think we should because this promotes the openness  
of the PSC to the community and I will volunteer to do the grunt work  
if necessary, but I think the onus is on the PSC member who brings an  
issue to vote to record it somewhere.
