[postgis-devel] Speaking of openness and formality - finish vote on Bborie Park as a committer

Actually, +2 is what the Mapserver PSC is using according to the RFC I 
was copying from, and they have many more heads in their PSC. I believe 
the same wording is copied into GDAL.

I think the idea is, not everyone in the PSC needs to know enough about 
everything to have a meaningful vote on everything. +2 means at least a 
motion and a 'second', both from people who are willing to support the 
proposition in a meaningful way, if it is necessary. It prevents a 
single person from just doing whatever they want, in theory, without 
forcing every decision to wait for every voter (or even half of the 
voters) to reply.

After all, we can always rollback changes in the SVN and kick someone 
out later, it isn't the end of the world.
