[Pulp-dev] PUP Process: "obvious consensus"

I wanted to follow up after our meeting about what “obvious consensus"
means in PUP-1. As a refresher, here’s the relevant section in PUP-1:


<https://github.com/pulp/pups/blob/master/pup-0001.md#deciding>The term
about “obvious consensus” is vague—perhaps intentionally so. I’m wondering
if we want to clarify what it means. Given that we have numerical votes, we
could implement an algorithm for deciding what an obvious consensus means.
A couple examples:

- At least X% of votes are +0 or +1
- We could score each vote (e.g. -2 for -1, -1 for -0, +1 for +0, +2 for
+1) and then add up the votes. An obvious consensus could be something like
a total of 0 or greater.

The other conditions (e.g. no -1 votes from pulp core devs) should still
apply I think. So even if there is an obvious consensus, the PUP wouldn’t
necessarily be approved.
