This refers to promoting a taglib out of the sandbox. However, this vote 
is for not just that promotion, but for a release, and all releases must 
be approved by the PMC.

This one does:


It also mentions some flexibility, though, so I guess that might allow for 
you and / or Rahul to be included in this particular vote.

You can go ahead and forward the vote results to the PMC. Once that's 
done, Rahul needs to file a CLA. I will keep an eye out for the CLA being 
recorded, and let you know when that has happened. At that point, you can 
make the account request, as described at the URL you quoted.
