I appreciate you trying to clarify this, but those documents
are drafts and are by no means binding. Furthermore, even though
I'm on the Incubator PMC, what I say is no more more less the
official rule than what those documents say.

Anyway, it looks like those documents were lifted from the way Jakarta
works today. As Greg (who is the ASF Chairman) pointed out in an earlier
message, the way Jakarta does it and the way HTTPD and APR do it are 
different. I do not believe the Jakarta method of public voting is 
good, and
I believe we should use the HTTPD/APR method in this project. I'm not 
to try to change Jakarta today, but I do not believe new projects should
be created with those rules in place.
