The Incubator isn't going to vote again.  The text of the graduation
resolution from an Incubator recommendation is advisory and the Board
often modifies it. (The Incubator gets the text wrong embarrassingly
often.)  The Board passing a resolution to establish a TLP is the
crucial step from the standpoint of the Foundation as a corporate
entity.

It's regrettable that the glitch was not caught until there was little
time left during today's meeting, but resolutions are powerful tools
and it's important to get the language right. The Foundation's bylaws
constrain the Board's ability to act -- it's not supposed to be easy.
