Subject Re: [OT] Verifying releases Was: svn commit: r1452037 - /commons/proper/beanutils/trunk/src/test/java/org/apache/commons/beanutils/bugs/Jira422TestCase.java

changed, but i think it still applies) is called a veto by the ASF.  If
accompanied by a valid technical justification, it stands (unless the
person can be talked out of it).
