Thanks for following up Chip. Though I do just want to clarify one

No you don't.

To me, this sounds like you're saying "to be honest, I could just close the
vote and ship this right now if I wanted to." I'm not sure if that was the
intended message. But regardless, you couldn't. A single -1 vote would be
enough to block the release. Binding or not binding. It doesn't matter. If
somebody expresses a real, and justified, concern about the artefact, then
you don't release until you've addressed that concern.

I have not given a -1, because I do not personally vote until I am
confident enough that I am not going to change my mind. (Ironic given that
I gave the release a +1 and then later changed my mind and retracted it.)
But I have signalled a clear concern, and that is enough to halt the vote.

AS IT HAPPENS, I am hoping that someone more experienced than me can assure
us both that this is a minor issue and that we can proceed with the
release, and get this fixed afterwards. I just don't
feel comfortable making that judgement call myself.

But I did want to make it clear that the technicalities of not having a -1
are unimportant.
