I suspect that [VOTE]s remaining open frustrates a number of incubator 
projects. There currently seem to be 5 ongoing votes at this point which 
are (I think I have these ordered by last response time):

    [VOTE] Apache cTAKES 3.0.0-incubating RC5 release - open 13 days
    [VOTE] Release Apache Onami-Test 1.4.0-incubating - open 3 hours
    [VOTE] Release Apache Onami-Logging 3.4.0-incubating - open 3 hours
    [VOTE] - Apache Clerezza Graduation Resolution - open 5 days
    [VOTE] Release Apache Bloodhound 0.4 (incubating) - open 5 days

Sorry if I missed any. Two of the above have just started but of the 
others, two took (or are still taking) a fairly long time to get started.

Regarding the original suggestion, a web based tool would only seem to 
be useful if the problem is associated with IPMC members not noticing 
rather than not feeling that they have time to do proper reviews. Has 
this been determined yet? Are there any other possible reasons?

Finally, a shameless request: please can we get more people reviewing 
the Bloodhound vote?
