Subject Re: Release process: Question about [VOTE] threads

Thanks.

I was getting worried that we were irritating our mentors/community by
having so many votes on our first release. Although I/we have been
through many releases - in a variety of capacities - in our work
environments, I think we are still learning how a release works in
this arena.
