I agree that a beta bar can be lower.  I'd be inclined to be lenient on 
technical issues, but not on licensing issues.

Three +1 PMC votes is all that is required, anyhow. As for a shorter 
period, the db guidelines specify a 10 day default and a 7 day minimum 
for a vote [1]. That's something the PMC could always look into changing.
