This isn't overriding the veto. You've based your veto on changes in  
project plan that have never been discussed or agreed to. At Ian's  
suggestion, I wrote my statement to clarify what the project wanted to  
do. It is completely appropriate for the PMC to vote about what the  
project should do going forward. I would hope that if the PMC votes  
for my proposal that you'd withdraw your veto since the basis for your  
veto would have been rejected.
