Subject RE: proposal: mentor re-boot

An ASF release needs three binding +1 votes (I see you say two but in your proposal but that
would require a policy change in the ASF which I doubt will happen). If there is only a single
mentor approaches the IPMC to ask for those votes. As a single active mentor on projects I
have both asked the broader IPMC and sought out help from people privately who I trust to
do the job well.

Following that statement to a logical conclusion, all podlings need to make a release is for
one mentor to +1 it.  That doesn’t match what we do today.

How do you reconcile the minimum +1 voting requirement for releases we have to day with what
you state above?

Or are you guys saying that the podling can do everything but release w/ one active mentor,
they need two to perform a release?
