Yes, otherwise the reviewer should have used -1. > My primary concern here is if the concerned person is unavailable (for > various reason) the acceptance of the patch gets delayed even if we have co > maintainers for the same module acking the patch? If people give -2 for components they are not responsoble for, I think we should educate them. Maintainers of components or stable versions should be allowed to give -2 (or +2), others can give that as well, but it should be seen as a -1 (or +1) in that case. For patches that are really urgent, and the -2 reviewer does not respond in a few days/week, the Gerrit admins can remove the -2. For these cases I would expect an email to the reviewer, with gluster-devel on CC. > What do others think here? Should we continue to carry over a -2 on the > subsequent patch sets? Yes. Niels
