Personally, when I'm voting with my Incubator PMC hat on, I'm voting
based on the fact that the project has followed the ASF guidelines for
how to prepare and vote on a release, and that we've legally speaking
got all our ducks in a row (i.e. CLAs are in, all the appropriate
license files and headers are in place, etc).

When I'm voting as a committer on the project that's when I take into
account technical merit of the release, although at that phase (before
it gets to the incubator PMC) I would also bring up any problems that
I'm aware of that would convince me to not +1 it with my Incubator PMC
hat on.
