Alan, I think what we're asking our mentors here is whether it would
be ok for us to
decouple and issue of releasing convenience binary artifacts from the
rest of the
discussion. IOW, suppose that this vote ONLY applies to the source releases
of Bigtop (no binary artifacts involved whatsoever), we're asking Owen
whether he
would have the same concerns. If he does -- we would like to hear them

That way, Bigtop community can move on working on the *source* of the
Bigtop 0.4.0
release and mentors/incubator leadership/ASF board can spend time figuring out
an ASF-wide policy for the binary convenience artifacts.

Does that makes sense?
