Here again, this suggests excessive paranoia.  We've had broken releases
from plenty of TLP's... they do get sorted out over time.

It might be worthwhile to require 3 ASF members on the initial release,
2 on the next, 1 on the following and then trust the committee to follow
the established precedent.  I believe that in the "Incubating Project
Requirements and Guidelines" (a different document than the proposal, one
that will be created and refined over time, largely the existing incubator
docs today to start with) ... projects should earn incremental trust and
authority.  You've raised one good example.
