Release votes are expected to be a decision of the list of people
empowered by the foundation to make that decision.  How that list
of people is populated for podlings is up to the PMC.  Right now,
the only list we have is the IPMC itself, as appointed by the board.

If the Incubator wants to create separate subcommittees to mimic the
operations of podling PMCs, with the subcommittee delegated the
right to mint incubating releases and the subcommittee membership
recorded in an appropriate place for Incubator committee records,
that would meet my approval.

The purpose of this requirement is to protect the folks who make
release decisions (i.e., to provide a corporate record of their right
to do an ASF release, since most of them have no other employment,
contract, or officer role to back them up).
