I view it as extremely unreasonable to expect every PMC member to vote
on every release.  What I do not find unreasonable is that the mentors
vote on the release for their podlings and whomever else is interested
who is an Incubator PMC member reviews the release and votes.  Once
that happens, then I think it's quite clear that the balance of the
3-vote minimum will likely be met or exceeded.

People like Robert have been complete stud muffins in this regards.
Big kudos to him and RAT.  It's been a major step forward and I'm very
thankful for his recent efforts.  *smooch*  =)  -- justin
