+0 indicates mild support but not to the degree of being willing to help
implement the feature or take any responsibility.

-0 indicates mild disagreement, but not sufficient to try and stop (veto)
the proposal.  A -0 also does not require significant justification.  It
can be just a statement if mild unease with the idea.

Neither has any effect on tie breaking.  I would stress that the "lazy
consensus" model of Apache, MapServer and GDAL is not about "close votes"
it is about reaching consensus with veto overrides only being a last
