Yes, Paul's vote is binding.

No, release announcements are not "announcing the podling".

This section was put in place to avoid companies making PR out of  
simply contributing code to Apache and then abandoning the project,  
having gotten "free" PR.

But once a podling has jumped through the release hoops, it's  
considered proper to announce the milestone.

Yes, the PRC at apache dot org needs to approve all announcements. You  
can contact them (us) any time for assistance (but you will probably  
have to write the press release yourselves).

Hope that helps,
