Indeed, thanks for the correction!

    Votes on Package Releases

    Votes on whether a package is ready to be released follow a format similar
    to majority approval -- except that the decision is officially determined
    solely by whether at least three +1 votes were registered.  *Releases may
    not be vetoed*. Generally the community will table the vote to release if
    anyone identifies serious problems, but in most cases the ultimate
    decision, once three or more positive votes have been garnered, lies with
    the individual serving as release manager. The specifics of the process
    may vary from project to project, but the 'minimum of three +1 votes' rule
    is universal.
I don't recall having seen a contentious release vote before.  Each time I've
seen a -1, either a new release candidate has been rerolled which fixes the
problem, or the person who cast the vote has been persuaded to change it.
