Here are my quotes:

  People perform releases. They can use whatever tools
  they want, but at the end, the only validation check
  that really matters are those PMC members who test,
  validate and +1 the release.

You may be referring to:

  Yes. Yes we do.

Note that this was in response to the concept of "rubber
stamping" a release, the idea being that anything out
of a CI is already assumed to be +1 worthy.

So tell me, assuming that you also agree w/ the idea
that an artifact out of a CI should not be blindly rubber-
stamped w/ a +1, what process would you go through to
convince you, for yourself, that it is ready for release?

Again, we vote on a release artifact.
