I dont have a problem with that. What I find poor practice is going
through a committee /<insert your governing body> before doing routine
things. Good governance on a distributed project in general is all
about enabling and facilitating contributors to do what they want
instead of centralizing all decisions. Notifications are easy to do in a
asynchronous fashion. That's fine. Moving decisions to a committee is
not. It is very much dangerous to a project to encourage that. Every
time we treat processes more important than the individual contributors
involved we are going to end up damaging ourselves.
