Many hearty thanks to all who have participated in the threads related to this
VOTE.  Release voting is a challenging problem that has bedeviled the
Incubator for years, but in the last few weeks we have come together and
made significant progress.

*   Built consensus for a concise checklist of release requirments.
*   Neared consensus on a controlled regime for relaxing policy on
    incubating releases under appropriate circumstances, potentially reducing
    the number of release candidates we force podlings to cycle through.
*   Completed one release voting reform experiment.
*   Enabled this experiment.

We've done all that with comparatively few emails: at 466 messages, November
clocked in as only the fourth busiest month this year.

I look forward to working with everyone to consolidate the gains made so far
and to finding more ways to improve the Incubator.
