Voting doesn't mean much if there's no agreement to process the votes.
 It's inappropriate to run a get out the vote campaign unless there's
an agreement that the votes about how they are going to be used for
something. Even non-binding public referendums have their place..as
long as people are told that they are non-binding and officials are
prepared to actually look at the results. We've never had any sort of
agreement with regard to how to review bugzilla voting.

But its a good question. The answer of course is putting up an agenda
item for discussion with Fesco or the Board depending on the nature of
the policy in dispute.  I think case Fesco and that's already slated
to happen.

But I think you've failed to state something important.  I think what
you really want to know is how Fedora users can register complaints
meant to illicit an immediate response... faster than the turn around
one can obtain via a fesco meeting.  You want a 911 number to call,
instead of a town meeting to speak at.  I realize your impatient and I
recognize the reasons why, but we don't really think we have a
mechanism meant to override a maintainers opinion as fast as you feel
it needs to be overturned.
