I've opened voting on the Shorter Attribute Syntax RFC:
Since all RFCs require a primary vote with a 2/3 majority, there is
a main vote to approve the secondary ranked-choice vote.
I don’t understand this question:
Are you okay with re-voting on the attribute syntax for PHP 8.0?
Is this a vote to see if we want to re-vote on the attribute syntax? I
think this is worded awkwardly, and I’m not sure what the outcome of a
yes or not vote means for this question.
I apologize if the wording is a bit awkward. The primary vote is to
formally approve holding the secondary ranked-choice vote, since all
RFCs require a primary vote with 2/3 majority. If the primary vote
doesn't reach a 2/3 majority, then the results of the secondary vote
won't be binding.
I haven't heard from anyone who is against holding the ranked-choice
vote, but based on discussion with the RMs we felt it was best to
include this primary vote to make sure the RFC doesn't deviate from
If I vote “no,” should I still vote in the secondary vote, or is voting
“no” effectively the same as choosing
<<>>for all three choices in
the secondary vote?
Or, if I vote “no,” does that mean anything I select for the secondary
vote is thrown out?
No, voting "no" on the primary poll won't add or remove any votes from
the secondary poll. If the
<<>> syntax is your first choice, you
should mark it as such in the secondary poll.
