Not correct. The votes from everyone are exactly the same,
and regardless of the issue in question. These current votes
are not just concerning the current PMC members, rather
they concern the future of the project as a whole.

Please see the decscription at
http://forrest.apache.org/guidelines.html#voting
"
All participants in the project are encouraged to show
their preference for a particular action by voting.
When the votes are tallied, only the votes of PMC members
are binding. Non-binding votes are still useful to enable
everyone to understand the perception of an action by the
wider community.
"

So if you want to vote "most positive" then you mean +1.
