I added a note to the release procedures page that the release manager should 
vote in a different email than the one calling for the vote.

We'll do this again with an RC2.  I'll name the directory 
apache-VCL-2.1-RC2-incubating for that one.  However, I'll wait on closing 
this thread with a [RESULT] email until we've finished vetting what needs to 
change to get a passing vote.

ITECS is a department at NCSU.  I wrote a web based accounts system for them 
some time ago that could be used with any php web app.  In the future, I'll 
be rolling that system in to Apache VCL.  It is disabled in the code right 
now.  I'd prefer not to remove all references to it, delaying this release, 
and then turn around and add it back (with appropriately renamed variables) 
in an upcoming release.
