     3Voting is now closed.
    114
    125 * This page lists concrete proposals that came out of a discussion.
    136 * All developers, plus people who offered to adopt a task now can vote.
    14 
    15 About what you are voting for:
    16 
    17  * This vote is about '''requirements''' for alpha 1. This means that voting in favor for something means that you want this feature to be absolutely for sure in the alpha. So for example, if you vote in favor for # 9 (fully integrate IO scheduler), you actually say that you want the release blocked until this feature is finished.
    18  * In this same vain, voting against making a proposal mandatory for release, does not mean that in the end this feature will not end up in the release. For example, if the I/O scheduler does not get enough votes to become necessary, but it is finished in time, it might as well end up in the package. Of course, this does not work for bundled software vote.
    19 
    20 About the voting:
    21 
    22  * The voting is not anonymous. Your vote will be registered, and anyone who is logged into Trac, can see your vote.
    23  * Voting starts at Sunday the 14th of September and it will end Monday the 22nd of September at 10:00 (AM) GMT.
    24  * During the period, you may alter your vote.
    25  * You do not have to vote for every proposal. You can abstain from voting.
    26  * Because of technical limitations, you have to click the '''vote''' button for every vote you make. '''You cannot fill out the whole page and then click on one vote-button, you will lose your data.'''
    27  * After the poll closes, the votes will be counted, and published.
    28  * A proposal is accepted with a majority vote. When there is a draw, the proposal will go to the mailing list for discussion, and there will be decided what will happen.
     7 * Most of the proposals are accepted, some are ~~rejected~~ and two are ''pending'', since they tied during the voting.

     9This page is open for changes regarding the descriptions of the proposals, but please steer clear from the vote results.

    124135This person differs from proposition # 6, as in that this ''manager'' is a developer maintaining the actual code part of the release, and the release coordinator performs the marketing, mirrors and other logistics behind the release.

    132147There are still some pending issues with our "ide" bus manager. The "ata" bus manager seems to work better, but a) takes a long time to boot, and b) does not yet implement DMA. We should either fix "ide", or complete "ata" for the alpha.
