Corresponding discussion on the mailing list:
There was a comment about a situation where Conflicts could be avoided. I updated the draft in place to mention that situation and we voted on it. We lacked quorum so we'll need additional votes in ticket. So far, we have:
tibbs, RemiFedora, limburgher, toshio: +1
We need one more +1 from racor, geppetto, Rathan, SmootherFr0gZ, or spot to pass this.
+1 from me.
