 ===== Proposal ===== ===== Proposal =====
-This RFC proposes that the rule for the required percentage of votes than an RFC needs to pass be simplified to always require 2/3 in favor. I request that RFCs which currently can request 1/2 + 1 votes do not enter the voting stage until this is decided, on the grounds that if the requirements for what an RFC needs to pass are under debate then no affected RFCs should proceed to that stage.+This RFC proposes that the rule for the required percentage of votes than an RFC needs to pass be simplified to always require 2/3 in favor of the RFC.

 +===== Motivation =====
 Motivations for requiring 2/3 of the votes or more for an RFC to pass: Motivations for requiring 2/3 of the votes or more for an RFC to pass:
  
-  ​Almost every time someone proposes an RFC and claims 1/2 + 1 there is a discussion about whether or not the RFC *really* ​is allowed to get away with 1/2 + 1 instead of 2/3. Making all RFCs require the same percentage will cut down on noise on the list. +  ​Almost every time someone proposes an RFC and claims 1/2 + 1 there is a discussion about whether or not the RFC is allowed to get away with 1/2 + 1 instead of 2/3. Making all RFCs require the same percentage will cut down on noise on the list. 
- +  ​Requiring 2/3 for all RFCs means that RFC authors need to work harder to make the RFCs appeal to more people; this theoretically would mean that more effort goes into the RFC and the end result for all users is better.

This means that any feature we add or change will be there for a long time. If we can't get 2/3 of voters to agree that something is done right then it should not go into PHP core.
