Yes, an IPMC vote is required for a podling to participate in the alternate
release procedure.

Only one podling has participated so far -- ODF Toolkit -- and that vote
passed without incident.  I doubt that passing such votes will ever be a
problem, because even under the alternate procedure, the first incubating
release requires three IPMC +1 votes -- the voting criteria are only relaxed
for later releases.

Any IPMC member who votes -1 to prevent a podling from using the alternate
procedure should expect questions along the lines of...

*   "Why?  They already made one release."
*   "If you're opposed to the use of the alternate release procedure, are you
    willing to review the release?"

So, it may be the case that even starting down the path of the alternate
process shakes loose some IPMC votes.  In my view the alternate process is
superior to the standard process, but I'd consider expediting the standard
process an acceptable outcome and I'm sure most podlings would as well.

This question is moot since you've now got your 3 IPMC +1 votes, but for the
record I'd expect new vote threads since the template has to be approved.
