No, it's not. That is a myth that you have been perpetuating for several
years now, but it's just not true, and quite frankly I'm fed up hearing it.

A +1 vote for a GA release is a vote of confidence that the corresponding
bits are suitable for GA release, and hence for consumption by "the public".
Certainly someone casting such a vote may take into consideration the
likelihood, or otherwise, that the release will be supported by the
community (although in truth that should have been a topic of discussion
before the bits ever came to a vote). However, a +1 vote is *not* an
assertion that the voter, specifically, intends to provide such support.
