I am assuming that the votes prior to the change are invalidated as a
conclusion from what I understand to be an Apache release.  The release
vote is about the legal aspect of the release artifacts.  Are all the
contents are properly licensed and the package properly cryptographically
signed?  Therefore, if the contents and signatures change even in the most
trivial way, then votes prior to the signature change cannot be taken to
be votes on the release at all.
http://www.apache.org/dev/release-publishing.html#signed

I have no concern if you get 3 PMC +1's after the change and a majority of
PMC +1's ('lazy majority').

It is a requirement that an Apache release be buildable from source, not
just contain source.

I understand the change is trivial.
I am only concerned if the release fails to get 3 PMC +1's after the
change. Then I'd be a little uncertain of the official status of the vote
(did at least 3 PMC members verify the signatures?).  The PMC's duty in a
release is to validate that the files released have valid contents _and_
match their crypto signatures.
