Subject Re: Error on Release Download Page page ?

Hang on, it's perfectly fine for ASF projects to publish and link to
milestone/alpha/beta releases - as long as they have also gone through
a formal release VOTE and checking, they are still "official
releases".

http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#release-types

What is confusing about your quoted pagraph is that it uses the
terminology "not full official releases" misleadingly -- but those
should still be "official releases" - just not at a "stable" or
"general availability" maturity level.

What is NOT ok is to link from the download page to a non-voted on
SNAPSHOT build or similar.   That is quite clearly explained in
http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html - but perhaps not on
release-download-pages.html.
