Not that it applies here, but a couple of observations.  Were David a PMC
member, a -1 *on code* with a technical justification would be a binding
veto of that change.  On a release, it is not a veto, but consideration
should be given.

This use of odd/even numbering to have a quality semantic may well be
confusing to people.  The HTTP server project mentions alpha, beta and GA
releases.  Jakarta projects refer to "builds", as in nightly, milestone,
beta and Release.  A "Release Build" is like a GA release.  I'd suggest
considering one of those, or something in reasonably common usage.
