Yes. In fact, I spent time reviewing AOO incubator releases. Don't
recall if I actually voted on one; probably not, since there were so
many other active IPMC members all over that.

I know; but it got everyone's attention, didn't it. :)

What I'd more seriously like to propose is that we come up with a tool
that slurps the general@ archives and pings the list once a week with a
reminder about outstanding votes. I'll happily invest my copious free
time towards that, if the IPMC agrees such a tool would be useful.
