That is because, every single time, the RM agreed that the release
was worth re-cutting.  The vote hadn't (necessarily) failed... it was
withdrawn for a better tag.

When you get into complex alpha/beta releases, many projects will
proceed, noting a -1 for some broken platform or broken feature,
in order to get to the -next- alpha or beta release with that defect
corrected, in addition to community feedback on the rest of the
platforms and features.

A majority of +1's over -1's is required, obviously :)
