No. My understanding is that only PMC members are authorized by ASF to make a release. Committers
can be release managers.

"All release artifacts within the directory MUST be signed by a committer, preferably a PMC
member.” [1]

"If the Release Manager is not a member of the PMC, they will need to ask a PMC member to
do the actual release publication.” [2]
