I would say save the time for now.

It has been 2 weeks time for voting. This project has seen messages.
It's september, not mid of august.
We got 1 (!) community vote. Vincente mentioned he is away (thats fine)
and John is not so much into gory technical details (accepted so far).

But where were the others? Is it really holidays which prevents the
vote? Do we ALL have holidays at the same time?

Before we move on with a new RC, i would like to know from the people
listed here:
why they didn't vote.**

Was it really holidays? No interest? No time?

It has been *a lot* of work for Ali to deal with the ASF release
procedures and kick out multiple RCs. It would be worth to know if he
should continue and if there will be any voters in the future. If there
is nobody who is willing to open a zip file, look into it and send out a
+1, then its really alarming. It took me 30 minutes or so to check the
release. This is not so much.

I have hoped the excitement in the project after John and a few others
appeared was so big that we would have managed to get a new release out
for review. If others, maybe Incubator Shepherds* look at this project
now, they would think: no community.

Please let me - us - know what you who are on the list above prevented
to vote**.


* Incubator Shepherds are Incubator PMC people, who look independently
from the mentor on the activity of the project and provide a second
insight for the report
** Of course I don't want you to speak out anything which should be kept
private - remember this is a public list. I just want to know: is there
a realistic chance that we ever get more than 3 votes? 3 are required to
get it out, but given the huge list of committers we should get more votes.
*** I am not a native speaker - and I hope my email doesn't sound to
angry. I am not. I would be dissappointed if it finally turns out that
we have lost the energy and steam of the past days
