Thanks Tom - that's great!

Once you post your reviews (here?) what happens? How does the team 
arrive at a final yes/no vote? How long does that take?

For 3.0, each reviewer posted a thread here with the necessary comments, 
including good points, bad points and recommendations. Discussion then 
ensued if necessary, with each member casting a +1 or -1 (or abstain). I 
then counted the votes, though in almost all cases there was consensus.

We then reported back to the author (usually by just CC'ing them on the 
framework team list threads) and they were told either that it was 
rejected, or to make the necessary changes (if any) and prepare for 
merge. Wichert took the final decision on whether to merge or not.

As a learning point, we (I) should have written down our process 
properly and handed it over better. I apologise for not doing this, 
relying on doing it verbally and letting you guys (especially Andreas) 
come up with your own take without too much guidance.
