The release vote situation has now also been mentioned in this month's report,
under "Issues for the Board/IPMC".

    Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
    aware of?

      We've been struggling to get 3 +1 IPMC votes for our latest release
      candidate.  We're stuck at two +1 votes.

    How has the community developed since the last report?

      We issued a "call for volunteers" to our users list and got a good
      response: http://s.apache.org/4Vx

      Of course, it will be easier to grow the community if we can reliably
      conduct a release vote.

The "2013 Alternative Release Voting Process" was drawn up for scenarios like
this one, allowing podlings to seize control of their destiny rather than
being locked in to waiting on IPMC members.

    http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Releases

In my estimation, the ODF Toolkit podling has sufficient expertise to
participate.
