(Apologies in advance that this isn't a VOTE email...)

For what it's worth, I tried to review a release candidate for an earlier
ManifoldCF release, but I had to give up because I just didn't feel qualified
to evaluate the legal aspect given ManifoldCF's large number of dependencies
and my limited Java-fu.

I find it very challenging to step in as a freelance IPMC member to cast a
release vote on a project I haven't been involved with.

I definitely consider the difficulty in scraping up these votes to be a
significant weakness in how the Incubator operates right now, but I don't have
any ideas about how to improve the situation. :(
