Clarify release policy by removing "binding" from dev vote
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: INCUBATOR-72
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-72
             Project: Incubator
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: policy
            Reporter: Craig Russell
            Assignee: Craig Russell
            Priority: Minor


The policy for podling releases states

"Therefore, should a Podling decide it wishes to perform a release, the Podling SHALL hold
a vote on the Podling's public -dev list. At least three +1 votes are required (see the Apache
Voting Process page), and only the PPMC member votes are binding. If the majority of all votes
is positive, then the Podling SHALL send a summary of that vote to the Incubator's general
list and formally request the Incubator PMC approve such a release. Three +1 Incubator PMC
votes are required. Below is an example showing how an incubating project managed this process:"

a vote on the Podling's public -dev list. At least three +1 votes are required (see the Apache
Voting Process page). If the majority of all votes is positive, then the Podling SHALL send
a summary of that vote to the Incubator's general list and formally request the Incubator
PMC approve such a release. Three +1 Incubator PMC votes are required. Below is an example
showing how an incubating project managed this process:"
