I am trying to parse what you mean by this vote Bill.

The vote is on all of the source release, including the -deps
tarballs.  For the terms of the vote, I will interpret this as a -1 on
the entire release.

I agree, the root of the problem is the APR project, and they should
do a release when they see fit.

I don't agree that we can't release a bundled unreleased version of
APR, we did this for many versions of httpd 2.0.x and 2.1.x.  It
definitely isn't preferred, but that's the APR project's problem.
