Considering that:

    1. One of the most "legal" things a PMC does is
       to release software and -
    2. That the PMC is task with overseeing that and -
    3. The Chair is tasked with managing the PMC and -
    4. The Chair is an officer of the foundation

I would think that *with very VERY VERY* good reason,
the Chair could, if absolutely required, veto a release,
but it would only be for legal reasons and not
technical ones.
