I would welcome the ability to have a shorter voting period and
genereally a simplified release process in certain circumstances. 

In http://www.nabble.com/Testing-tt16333791.html I argued for a
simplified voting process for beta releases to make it easier to
(legally) gather feedback from users, but back then there did not seem
to be much support for it...
