Which IMO is in contradiction to your response when I launched a vote some days ago about
releasing a TLP pom :-). And
it's stated clearly in the dev doc you pointed me to that no vote is needed to release a TLP
pom:, chap. 'Corrective Actions to Properly Use the TLP
POM', pt. 6:
"No vote needed for TLP POM release for PMC members - just a notification to release with
4 hour grace period to
accommodate the lack of using SNAPSHOT for this POM"
