thank you!

I have one comment on the voting, there are no vetoes in Apache
release votes, as per
vetoes only apply to code changes.

So I suggest changing the "Go through the voting process" section to say

...both parties to pass the vote, as per

* the vote email needs to be open for at least 72 hours;
* at least 3 positive votes are received from the binding members,
which means PPMC members in OpenWhisk community and IPMC members in
* there are more positive than negative binding votes;
* once at least 72 hours have passed, the vote is tallied in a
[VOTE][RESULT] message.


I don't seem to have karma to make those changes myself on that wiki page.

Of course, negative votes should be taken into account if possible,
even if non-binding.

But that's not a formal requirement - we think it's more important for
the project to be able to move forward if that's what a majority of
voters wants.
