draw some attention to what I believe is a bad trend. I've read some
RFA's and the recent RFB. I asked Riana if I could use her RFB as an
example. I'm not asking anyone to go support or oppose it, you all can
do that on your on.
When I look at some of the opposes and Neutrals, primarily the ones by
Animate and FM, I get a little confused. (regarding the KM nomination)
Since when did RFA and RFB become political and not about trust and
abuse potential? It seems these discussions have evolved away from
that. After reading Jimbo's opinion on the matter, and this was made,
what a few years back, perhaps he should go semi nilly willy.
I mean what do you have to do anyway, judge RFA, renames, bots on advice
of BAG. How does kelly martins rfa nomination translate here. It does
Any project can use good custodians, but damn, the bar is high.
I completely agree with you. I'm disappointed in how several of these RfBs
have turned out, but most especially Riana's and Neil's (pre-civility
incident). Riana nominating Kelly Martin has absolutely nothing to do with
how she would perform as a bureaucrat. It's not as if she would go
completely rouge and promote a candidate with KM's percentage level. There's
a similar issue with Neil's; people are opposing him because of his stance
on re-confirmation RfAs; but do we not trust him to either vote oppose and
recuse himself from closing, or close according to consensus regardless of
his personal feelings?
