Along the same lines as my email to geoserver-devel I will be out for the next 3 weeks on holidays, and won't be checking work email.
Benjamin at opengeo (cc'd) will be looking after the build server while i am gone so if there any issues feel free to contact him.
In terms of votes on any proposals I will leave it up to you guys to proxy my vote on anything so nothing gets held up.
Have a great holiday and i will see you all in the new year.
