[OpenLayers-Dev] PSC Vote on Sponsorship Doc

Why don't we call this first vote (and this thread) closed. (Not really
meant to be a question.)
The proposal went out over 2 days ago , and we've had no -1 votes.
That means (to me) that the PSC agrees that:
"If we agree to pursue sponsorship for OpenLayers via the OSGeo Project
Sponsorship program, the PSC believes that the sponsorship document
referenced  adequately describes the goals, intended uses, and
potential benefits of project sponsorship."
Obviously the meat of this discussion involves convincing anyone who
objects that the OSGeo Project Sponsorship program is a good way forward.
Let's begin a new thread for that discussion.
 Two days and one hour.
