A -1 on a graduation resolution is significant.  While a -1 on a release VOTE
does not block the release, a -1 on a VOTE like graduation, entry into the
incubator, policy change, etc, ordinarily blocks progress.

We handle things this way at Apache because consensus decision keeps
communities together.  When issues are decided by majority rule, the
minority's opinions can be disregarded -- and the losing faction ends up
isolated.  In contrast, when issues are decided by consensus, the majority has
to go the extra mile to consider the opinions of the minority and possibly
adjust their proposals.

So it would be helpful if you would please clarify whether you intend to block
Kylin's graduation this month.  If not, please consider changing your position
to -0 on graduation.  On the other hand, if you do intend to block graduation,
please indicate what could persuade you to change your position.
