Based on this I understand that the vote has passed, BUT:

Some issues have been raised in general@incubator, and 4 people, although
they haven't voted -1, felt it would be wise to withdraw the voting until
these issues have been fixed, namely:
a) making (at least) one apache official release,
b) placing an unvoted artifact into distribution
c) tidying up the project's incubator site,

The first and the second one being showstoppers (JSPWIKI-540) towards

So we need to decide (as soon as possible, in order to translate to
general@incubation) if we withdraw the voting or accept it as passed. The
only dire consequence would be the need of casting the vote again, once we
have made an ASF release, which we have to do anyway: When beginning the
[VOTE] thread I stated that 2 releases were made following Apache
guidelines, but it turns out that I was mistaken - 2.8.3 and 2.8.4 were
released following apache *voting* guidelines, but they were neither
distributed the apache way, nor gpg-signed, for instance. So they were more
to be considered "Release candidates" rather than "ASF releases".

I'm inclined to withdraw + recast community vote, so we go through
graduation "the ASF way", from beginning to end, but I don't know which is
the general feeling.

My suggested steps would be:
- turn JSPWiki 2.9.0-svn-9 into 2.9.0-incubating-0 and release it the ASF
- at the same time tide up the project's incubator site (I already have
some mock-ups on this)
- approve the charter, that is, if there aren't any comments or changes
during this week, mark as resolved JSPWIKI-538
- once all the above is complete, recast community vote, and, on approval,
proceed with IPMC vote

So, what do you think?
