The patch has been in during the latest Gump run and hasn't caused any
test failures that haven't been there before.  neither in Ant nor any
other project AFAICT.

Petar (who is "the Cactus people right" now, unfortunately) has
already tested trunk and I'm sure we can convince him to test the RC.

Any kind of release needs a vote, unless we don't call it a release.
But let's not go down there.

Releases are majority votes, so if you get the majority of the PMC to
+1 the beta in less than a week, you are ready to go since later votes
cannot change the outcome anymore.
