Validating a release is probably the greatest example of why I asked
the question
and suggested that formalization might be needed. At this point, being
a VP of a TLP
at Apache I feel pretty confident that I can help podlings with good feedback
on release practices. However, I can't really help them clear the '3 IPMC votes'
hurdle, can I?


P.S. Same question could be asked wrt. other activities requiring IPMC
karma, btw.
