+One of the goals of incubation is to teach podling communities how to
+build ASF compliant releases.  As part of the learning process, the podling community needs
to be
+fully engaged in the review process.  A podling community should begin to familiarize themselves

+ASF compliant releases are always produced by a PMC, and for podlings  this is the IPMC.
 This is
+why it is mandatory to have at least 3 {plusone} votes from
+Usually your link:/incubation/roles_and_responsibilities.html#mentor[mentors] (who are also
IPMC members)
+will vote on your releases.  Other IPMC members will as well.  IPMC members will check for
+compliance with the ASF policies and with link:/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Releases[Incubator
+Anybody reviewing the releases will explain what they checked and what they found while reviewing
+the release.  They will also rate the severity of any issues they find.  Some issues may
be blockers.
+Others issues may be resolved in later releases.  Those voting on the release will base their
+on this information.
+If you do not understand the feedback you receive, or if you believe that it is misguided,
+please say so!  We are all learning, and discussion is an important part of open source development.
