According to the Apache methodology, a change which has been made or proposed may be made moot through the exercise of a veto by a committer to the codebase in question. If the R-T-C commit policy is in effect, a veto prevents the change from being made. In either the R-T-C or C-T-R environments, a veto applied to a change that has already been made forces it to be reverted. Vetos may not be overridden nor voted down, and only cease to apply when the committer who issued the veto withdraws it. All vetos must be accompanied by a valid technical justification; a veto without such a justification is invalid. Vetos only apply to code changes; they do not apply to procedural issues such as software releases.

can be a noun or a verb. When both chambers of Congress have passed a bill or joint resolution, the President can sign or veto it. If he signs it, it becomes law. If he vetoes it, it is returned to the originating chamber, and Congress may or may not attempt to override the veto. A veto is the President's refusal to approve a bill or joint resolution passed by Congress, thus preventing its enactment into law.
