I'll be perfectly honest: I had reservations about Aaron when he started
posting to the mailing list. He is a smart guy and always takes the
initiative, but I've seem him become combative in the past. He hasn't been
that way on this project, but than again he has been working hard to obtain
commit access and doesn't want to piss anyone off before this vote takes
place.  I can't give him a +1 but I can't disregard his contributions to
this project either, so a -1 is inappropriate.

There. That is honest feedback on a public list. I debated doing this. The
fact that I debated speaking my mind at all, convinced me that private
voting in the PMC is a must. You want honesty in a public forum, then people
are going to be hurt -- or at least offended.  I'm sorry, Aaron if this has
offended or embarrassed you in any way. I felt compelled to be honest.
Apparently David Blevins and others feel you deserve commit access ... I
respect there opinions and won't object.
