It is possible to do releases from the Incubator but it needs to be very 
clear to users that this is not an offical release by the ASF and to the 
Incubator PMC that this something needed to help build the community of 
the podling.

To that end, sticking something on a wiki or some external site is 
likely to be very *unhelpful.* Better to follow normal ASF procedure for 
cutting a release, then when you have the final distribution ready 
contact the IPMC (via general@incubator) to get final approval to 
release it.

For general release process see http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html
