Interesting -- I wasn't so confident with my interpretation of it since:

(a) I'm not a lawyer, and;
(b) I can't find anywhere regarding ASF policy on existing VOTE threads
started before TLP VOTEs and resolutions passed in that regard. My guess is
that it's probably too specific to have an official policy written down for
it, therefore it's open to interpretation.

I'm still not convinced that it's 100% clear who in fact should be the
binding VOTEs on something started in the Lucene-ville, but now existing in
Nutch-ville, but in the interest of moving forward, that's why I just
suggested those with overlap anyways (Andrzej, Sami, and myself) try and
check out the release at the very least to see if we can move it forward.
