Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Re-trying releases

My vetoes (actually there is no veto in a release vote since this is a
majority vote) are grounded on a message Roy Fielding once sent to the
Jackrabbit list [1]:

> The problem with doing all of our laundry in public is that the public

Unfortunately I cannot readily find the written rule for this, but this
makes perfect sense to me, which is why I would prefer to get a new
version number. Which is also why I always choose a new version number
for a release vote after I had to cancel a vote.
