I would like to propose removing the voting requirements from the
Piccolo2D release process

"Votes from Piccolo2D project committers are binding, however votes
from other contributors and users are welcomed.  The vote must receive
at least three +1 binding votes and no -1 binding votes."

I was not able to recruit the necessary number of votes in April and
the number of active committers has not improved since then.

I will proceed-until-veto starting next week with the following:

 - remove voting requirements from ReleaseChecklist wiki page
 - update Maven plugin dependency versions
 - release the contents of branches/release-1.3 as version 1.3.2
 - release the contents of trunk as version 2.0
 - branch trunk to branches/release-2.0
 - merge branches/3.0-spike to trunk
 - release the contents of trunk as version 3.0

Then at that point I may import trunk into a github repository and
continue development on version 3.x there.

Now would be a good time to raise objections.
