I didn't think a vote was required for minor/bugfix releases inside a 
stable branch, I had always assumed that the release manager for that 
stable branch (me in the case of 4.8.x) remained the de-facto release 
manager responsible for planning and deciding on all bugfix releases in 
the branch.

However, due to my lack of action on getting a 4.8.2 release out, I am 
happy to vote +1 for 4.8.2 next week with Howard as release manager.

Thanks for taking the lead on this Howard.
