Re: Incubation public comment period

Busy people just don't pay attention to Github notifications until it
really matters?

Maybe the weeks feel extra long these days but it seems just an extra unnecessary amount of time.

All the work and review happens in the open so it's not like people will be surprised.

I see no reason to move to one week if the meetings are two weeks
apart. This is like an auction "asking once, asking twice..."

This sparked a few thoughts I figured I would share...

1. If someone goes on vacation for a week they could miss a public comment period in its entirety. As someone who went through the 2 week period for my project I'd like it to go faster. But, as someone who takes vacations for a week I like that a comment period would not be so short that I'd miss it.

2. Has anyone ever commented in the second week?

3. In my experience, which may not mirror everyone, the DD's are primarily done by the projects. The SIGs they are presented to are small groups in the broader system. There are others who might have very relevant feedback.

4. Has anyone ever put in the time to provide comment feedback of any kind of useful or detailed nature? If no one is gonna use it does it matter?

I'm obviously not of one mind on this. But, I figured someone should comment in a comment period on comment periods.

Chris is suggesting reducing the comment period after a vote is called from two weeks to one week.

I can see the attraction, because in practice if people are going to comment it seems they’re likely to react pretty fast rather than leave it to the end of the comment period. And this won't be the first anyone hears about it because the DD will have been happening for some weeks prior to this. But it seems worth highlighting for public comment (how meta!)
