This is true but a release cannot be vetoed, so a binding vote here is of little value. The
purpose of binding votes is that the PMC needs to stat that the ASF is entitled to release
the code under the Apache License v2. A +1 indicates that the individual feels this is the
case and are willing to be state it publicly. 

There are a few other procedural items that PMC membership is important. My point was that
not being on the PMC doesn't limit ones ability to participate.
