  * Miscellaneous
  
+   * The initiative to reform release voting yielded multiple breakthroughs
+     during this report cycle.
  
+     1. An experimental framework was approved whereby PPMC votes become
+        binding for releases after the first if a release checklist is
+        completed by the PPMC and approved by a Mentor.
+     2. A concise checklist of release requirements was assembled, where
+        each item is required by either ASF-wide policy or Incubator policy.
+     3. Consensus was built for a controlled regime for relaxing policy on
+        incubating releases under appropriate circumstances, potentially
+        reducing the number of release candidates we force podlings to cycle
+        through.
+ 
+     All of this was achieved with significantly fewer emails compared with
+     past reform attempts.
+ 
+   * Exercising the new regime for controlled relaxation of policy, a bugfix
+     release by Spark (0.8.1) which bundled jar files was approved by the
+     IPMC after the podling presented a roadmap to eliminating them in the
+     next minor point release (0.9).
