Everybody is allowed to vote (see
http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html), but not all votes are
binding.

Note that negative votes from qualified voters are vetos that cannot be
overridden and prevent completely from doing the change until the caster
withdraws it. For this reason, they should normally have an explicit
reason so that discussion can go on and the proposal can be adapted or
explained. See the URL above.

In this case, I understand you are strongly against the change but I
would be happy to have a thorough explanation of your rationale. You can
even convince everybody else you are right and we should not do it!

Votes in the Apache way are often either non-issue when everybody agrees
or constructive discussions when there are different views.
