You lost me Steve.  I personally don't think that releases should
be decided on the PMC list.  A release is something we all should
be excited about, and support.  That's the community side of me

I don't recall seeing anything in writing that explicitly stated
that all releases have to be decided on the PMC list.  If it is
stated that way in the Apache Bylaws, then that is something the
PMC needs to take up with the board so that we can that question
resolved.  I seriously doubt that *all* PMC decisions have to
reside on the PMC list.

We only agreed on how to agree.  We didn't outline any procedures
that are adopted by the community on how releases work.  Perhaps we
need to address that.
