It is slightly more subtle than that. Whilst the voting documentation
states that only committers/PMC can vote - it really means that they have
binding votes (so if we had lots of +1 from the community, but a PMC voted
-1, their vote would 'override' the community votes).

However having lots of community votes is a good sign to the incubator -
since it shows that the project's community is active - and it is even
plausible that the community might find things that we don't (due to trying
the release in lots of different ways).

If you can only review part, that is still fine. Place your vote and simply
state that you were only able to review the UX.

Does this clarify it a bit? (I agree that perhaps I hadn't been clear in
the past)
