[DISCUSS] Vetoing commits

Calcite PMC,

For the first time in this project (to my knowledge) a committer has vetoed the commit of another committer.

The details of this particular case are here: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CALCITE-2438 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CALCITE-2438>

I would like the PMC to answer the following questions: (1) is the veto valid in this case? (2) when in general is it valid to veto a commit?

Here is the ASF policy document on the matter: https://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html#Veto <https://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html#Veto>

I was on the receiving end of this veto, so I am far from dispassionate about this matter. Therefore I intend to take a back seat in this discussion and I would appreciate if another PMC member would drive it. I will state for the record my opinion that vetoes are an important right in the ASF, and that making a veto is not a light matter, nor is a PMC declaring a veto invalid.
