Well, it's already in the text of the vote ("This vote is to regulate the
use of branches in the official Tomcat repository beyond branches that are
approved by the community such as 8.5.x and 7.0.x"): Private branches are
defined here as any branches whose creation is not approved and voted on by
the community.

= I feel like creating branch "remm", is it allowed ?
So I say no, because this is the Tomcat repo, not remm's repo, even though
commits could possibly be interesting this is a bit too much.
