Re: Requesting vote / review for submitted package

I was wondering how this voting and package acceptance process would be

the distribution.

You can certainly lobby for your package to be voted on but the fact
that you only got one pro vote means that, for now, your package doesn't
go in.  That's what the voting process is for.  If every ITP generated
an automatic inclusion in the cygwin release then we wouldn't need a
voting process at all.

FWIW, I've got -- what? 30? -- packages in cygwin. And some of my ITPs didn't get the required number of votes -- which is why I don't have 35. So there's no conspiracy to keep new maintainers out of the club -- it's just that, sometimes, few people see the value in yet-another-package-for-???. <sniff. pout>

Not that I'm complaining -- I'm just re-iterating cgf's point: not every ITP'ed package makes it into the distro; even from long-time maintainers.
