      I see I can't vote since I've opened the issue. Ok, so I guess as a rule of thumb we can assume the proposer has an implied positive vote, no?

      Please note that the success of Continous Builds depends on module maintainers making use of OnlineTests (we will need to draw a hard line for the GeoTools 2.4 release)

      (aside: hit the "vote" button on the left to vote for this proposal)

      Since I am wanting to follow up on this proposal - and it was approved a meeting or two ago - I have taken the first step towards putting it into practice.

      There is still considerable work in terms of updating documentation etc even after this proposal was accepted ... and we did not identify a party to do this. This points out an initial gap in the process :-(

      - Justin's idea of having a table of tasks outlining the work; and make sure each has funds/mandate/time is a good one (and it would help in this case)

      In terms of specific tasks:
      - Make a proposal
      - Update developers guide to reflect proposal process
      - PMC review of developers guide modifications

      You will find a "Proposal" template in the geotools space ... give it a go.

      As an "example" I have taken an idea from skype chat with Simboss and written it up here:
      - http://docs.codehaus.org/display/GEOTOOLS/Move+implementations+to+coverage+and+render+modules
      - http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/GEOT-1148

      Please don't pick on simboss - I just needed an example to iron out the proposal process before I need to use it in anger :-)

      I also have to report that the Jira voting thing is not going to work (since it seems people get a limited
      number of votes and will want to "unvote" after a proposals is accepted.

      I will attempt to update the existing proposal page to match the the new template :-(

      I have upgraded this issue to "blocker" as it prevents me from making proposals.
