Should this addendum to Daniel's proposal be formalized as well?

All "new feature" commits (the earlier discussed metric of "changes
user-seen behavior to the level of needing a manual modification" is
dandy) should be posted to flyspray (where the yays and nays can have it
out) for at least one week prior to commit?

IMHO, if you don't create a time-window, a splinter-group minority could
bypass the system by +2ing a commit proposed on IRC before the naysayers
have a chance to voice their opinion. Even if the group rushing to +2
isn't a minority the atmosphere created by such behavior would only
increase the rancor, and the only way to prevent such behavior is
through a structural measure such as the wait-to-commit period.
