The good thing about release votes is that they can't be vetoed so
regardless of what policies may or may not be documented whether or
not a release vote passes is just down to getting enough people to
vote +1. Votes on general@ often stall and require a respin when
someone claims something is wrong which puts off others from voting.
Something as basic as a dependent license missing from the LICENSE
file would be one of those things that in the past would have always
demanded a respin, so the change, and it is a change, to allow wiggle
room is what i hope people will remember from this.
