I disagree in the SCXML vote he says "I'd like to hear a few
committers who are committing to following scxml" compared to "I don't
plan to be +0" in this vote.

Yes I agree this is a valid concern for any promotion vote - but thats
not what Henri said and I think my point is still valid that if all
PMC members only voted +1 on promotions of components they plan to
contribute to then the sandbox may as well be shut down. Fortunatly
thats not the case so far in this vote.
