So I still hope we can issue such a vote on these two patches if possible.

Lars, how would we go about this?

It don’t actually think that a vote is necessary in this case, as we are not paralysed and this is a relatively minor disagreement. What appears to be the case is that Jan and Tim have a different opinion on whether this patch can go in (on the basis that some things are missing). We split big features into smaller parts all the time, which then get committed in phases. So in the big scheme of things, this is really a minor issue. 

In any case, the vagueness of the process is intentional, because it encourages you to try and resolve issues rather than hide behind a process. 

There are several ways we can do this: 
* Jan and Tim can ask the other committers for an opinion (either publicly on the list - ideally related to this thread for traceability - or privately depending on preference) and one may change their opinion based on what the others say
* As there is also a potential risk element for the 4.5 release Jan/Tim could ask the Release Manager for an opinion too and take that into account
* Jan/Tim can ask the Project Lead (aka Keir) to make a decision : in other words as peers they both agree to disagree and ask Keir to act as referee. 

Does this make sense?
