I'm hoping this thread doesn't get side tracked into a discussion  
about voting procedures, but since you asked...

FWIU, you can not veto a release.  You can vote -1 and attempt to  
change other peoples minds and their votes to a -1.  This is what  
normally happens when someone votes -1, because is is normally  
followed by a very good reason.  On the other hand, we have had  
release held up while someone fixed a nit.  This is something I hope  
to avoid that by reminding those that nit pick that they can be out  
votes, so it is best to get their nits on the table now (or even  
better fix them now).
