Thank you for the detailed instructions. I am going to go through those
next.

I must have misunderstood the voting process, which I thought was, if all
goes well:
- Send a [VOTE] email (this thread)
- Wait 72 hours
- Send a [VOTE][RESULT] email:
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/commons-dev/201103.mbox/%3CAANLkTikgpm0Lo-aoi8WfKjXznOXzodtgza2CwJdcQ+F-@mail.gmail.com%3E

Is there a [VOTE][CLOSE] email that needs to go out as well after 72 hours?

I can see that I should have mentioned the vote timeline in the [VOTE] email
as documented in http://commons.apache.org/releases/prepare.html

But, I used the [VOTE] email template from
http://wiki.apache.org/commons/UsingNexus which contains no such text.

Sigh, the release process is so obtuse with the mixture of Maven, UNIX,
Nexus, multiple instruction pages, and so on. It is quite discouraging and a
barrier to progress :(
