Committers only get votes on the projects they're comitters for.
Non-committers are encouraged to provide input without voting.

Loose projects with a lot of committers get upset when non-committers
confuse the tally by using "+1" in their input, so if you preface your
comments with, "I don't get a vote, but I'd be +1 because I think..." no one
will be confused.

The PMC can step in an overrule a wayward project full of committers, but
that's almost unheard of.

I think that FOP is not really usable in Applets which is the only sensible 
reason for supporting JDK 1.1

PS What are the rules for an "official vote". I have been told off before
for voicing my opinion about a vote in another Apache project. Basically
I was told I couldn't vote because I hadn't contributed any source.
Shockingly enough this is true for FOP too.
