By the rules of Apache, three PMC binding votes are needed to make a release. In addition,
it's a gauge of general interest in the project.

 (see "votes on package releases", in particular)

tested the latest trunk and it looks good", or something else?

If you find a bug in the release artifacts (not in the latest trunk) before the release is
made, the release is likely to be pulled.

debt management (including upgrading dependencies), so I cannot typically validate a new PyLucene
version in less than a week.

A vote must run for at least 72 hours.
Because you are not on the PMC, your vote falls into the "interest gauging" category, is not
binding and is considered "best effort".

then it would be nice to have a link to the answers in VOTE requests.
