Where did you see a veto?  A -1 is a veto on code, not P&P.

I accept that as your view.  I disagree with you, but I accept your opinion
as yours.

For the reasons that brought the Incubator into existence.

Well, first of all, successful incubation isn't nothing.  It means that the
project *started* with a Member or Officer sponsoring it, and the Incubator
PMC voting to give it a chance.  And then it was able to attract a
sustainable community, and operate according to Apache principles.  But you
are implying that you have a particular vision for the ASF.  What is that?
