The Board works very hard to provide thorough review of the reports it
receives.  While IPMC review of podling reports is better than it used
to be, there is still room for improvement, particularly in the realm
of cross-cutting feedback.

We worked hard to improve the situation around releasing and we
succeeded. The Incubator today produces higher quality releases more
efficiently and with less contention than it ever has before.

To address the specific point about voting, there have been a number
of times when release votes are run simultaneously on the podling dev
list and general@incubator.  It's fine. I tend not to recommend it
simply because most podlings screw up RC release mechanics a lot and
going through several trivial RCs adds noise to general@incubator.
