RFV
The last stage in a proposal on the Style mailinglist (see StyleCouncil) to change a MusicBrainz guideline, practice, or policy. Follows a Request For Comment.

Vetos

Please try to not cast "preemptive vetos" during the RFC stage, such as "If this goes to RFV, I will veto." Instead, try to work with the proposer to find a compromise on which you both can agree.

RFVs should not be vetoed simply because you do not like a change. Before casting a veto, please attempt to describe your concerns about the proposal, preferably during the RFC phase. A veto is not valid without a good argument as to why a proposal should not be accepted.
