ALERT! NOTE: This is a legacy rule, replaced by AcceptedBy7DayFeedbackPeriod

Accepted By 14 Day Rule

The 14-day rule is defined in TWikiRelease04x01Process and TheFourteenDaysRule.

When a proposal for a new or changed feature is raised, AND, the proposal has a named developer that commits to implement the feature IF it gets accepted then the 14-day rule applies.

The 14-day rule means that committed proposals are per default accepted after 14 days provided that

  • Noone has raised concern against the feature or its spec. Anyone has the right to raise concern.

The minute someone starts arguing the feature or the spec the 14-day rule will no longer apply. Instead the proposal can be accepted either by consensus or by being voted for at a release meeting.

The community is encouraged to give positive statements on feature proposals if they agree but they do not have to. Silence means accepted after 14 days. But remember - the 14-day period does not start until a named developers has accepted to drive the feature to implementation.
