To clarify this a little bit, all binding votes come from Project 
Management Committee (PMC) members, not committers (all PMC members are 
committers, btw).   It is the PMC that makes the decisions for Apache 

That being said, it is still important for _everyone_ in the community 
to vote so that the PMC better knows how to manage a project and what 
direction the project should go.
