Thanks.  My bad.  I should have not used to word, veto.

I, along with Guillaume, enjoin Sebb to reconsider his vote which  
seems to be based on preferences and not policy.  Preferences are the  
purvey of the project community, not the Incubator PMC, and should be  
worked out in the former, not during a vote.

The Incubator needs to minimize the laborious nature of releases while  
focusing on IP clearance and community health.
