You're quite right. A "-1" is not a veto on a release vote. (It is on any other vote.)

I would still say that many people, especially those new to ASF, feel that a "-1" is a veto
(and receive it harshly).
As Incubator VP people do respect you, and comments on how we expect releases to be fixed
(or improved for next time) i believe would be received better without the "-1", even if technically
you are correct (and you are providing the feedback on ASF voting actually works).

My suggestion/thought-bubble wasn't the burden being the responsibility in getting graduate
projects in fixing their violations, but only in surveying the precedence and extent of violations
 among ASF projects.
