If you're unhappy I've passed along your private vote, sorry about that. I
think that the natural interpretation of the comments (and subsequent
actions) is that this is a vote best held in public, so I imagined since no
one's vote really changed from the public version we've held 2 times already
(nor did the rationale seemingly) it was a liberty to take. In any case,
sorry to take your liberty away from providing your own private vote, won't
happen again.

That's one way, sure. If it's not a sensitive matter, it's typical Apache
policy for the PMC to conduct as much non-sensitive business in public as
possible. Passing along non-sensitive information for completeness on a VOTE
with impact is a just cause IMO. But, everyone is free to their own
interpretation and those other folks can feel free to re-chime in with their
votes (I've CC'ed them on this message -- please reply to general@).
