if it bothers you so much, you don't have to participate. :-)

what do you mean by 'release'?  release software, or be released
from the incubator?  ah, reading ahead i see you mean the latter.

no.  if there is no tlp sponsor, the board gets to create a new
tlp for the soon-to-be ex-podling.  if there is a tlp sponsor, it
gets to incorporate the graduated podling.  if it doesn't want
it, the board will likely ask other projeccts if they want to
adopt it, or create a new tlp for it.

not a requirement, but almost certain to happen. :-)

so, only one vote, not three.

your suppositions would be wrong imnsho.  #3 is the most vested, since
nothing will happen without that vote.  since the podling doesn't really
need to vote to emerge, its vestedness (#2) doesn't apply.  and #1 doesn't
apply because when the incubator says the podling is ready to emerge, it
will emerge -- one way or another.

or am i misunderstanding what you mean by 'vested'?

is it childish to point your finger at something that doesn't exist? :-D
