+1 (binding)

I'm jumping into this VOTE thread (since I'm an IPMCer who's not a
mentor). My vote is binding (all the community is encouraged to VOTE
but only some VOTEs are binding on Apache) so I've reminded people
that it is since people might not know. The official list of committee
members is in the committers repo but I'm also on the WhoWeAre linked
from (which is usually a little late).
