The intent is to have the first release inspected by three IPMC members.
That's happened.  +1 to use the alternative process for this release.

There has to be a IPMC vote first approving ODF Toolkit's participation in the
alternative process.  I suggest that you call that vote soon, today if you
like.  If anybody objects (which I doubt) we can launch a discussion thread
at such time.

    This VOTE is to permit the Apache ODF Toolkit podling to participate in
    the "2013 Alternate Release Voting Process".

    [ ] +1 Permit participation.
    [ ] -1 Do not permit participation because...

FWIW, I don't see any reason why the new podling vote incorporating the
checklist procedure could not proceed in parallel, starting before the IPMC
permission vote closes, if that is convenient for the PPMC.

Sounds good to me.  I know that you as an individual have ample licensing
expertise.  Perhaps other PPMC members do as well already; but in any case,
the checklist exercise presents an opportunity to spread that knowledge
around to all who take part.  I hope that it proves useful.
