Wow, that was quick! :)

I'm afraid I'm not able to access the files. Perhaps you forgot to make
them world readable?

The only problem I see with a 72-hour vote, is that the bylaws of the DB
PMC[1] require at least 7 days, unless a majority of the PMC members
have voted +1 (or -1) before that:

  The minimum and default requirement for a passing vote is simple
  majority of PMC members casting ballots. The default voting period is
  10 days and the minimum is 7 days unless the success or failure is
  arithmetically known.
