Yes I did check that, but as you can see from it I can only see one verification -

Without a corresponding discuss mail for each vote, I assume one of the following might have
* I will vote because I trust Lahiru
* I verified previous RC, so probably this is also ok
* Its been too delayed, so lets get it out now
* I am always working on trunk and I know it works, so this RC is also probably ok

Rather I see a simple authoritative vote:
* I verified the following, so I am happy with these artifacts.

to send them to the DISCUSS thread your testing process and what you found. For this release,
there is an issue with the key trust, and the PPMC should have very well caught it if you
spent 5 minutes to verify the vote while not waiting for the mentors to catch it.
