If it's a release from Craig's home directory then isn't it just a build
provided by Craig, it's not a Release of the JDO project.

I guess I'm still confused as to what this vote is about, no vote is
needed for Craig to produce a set of jars etc. on his home directory.

I don't think a vote is needed to start a release process either, all
that is needed is a release manager willing to do a release.

I'm just worried that people might be thinking that by voting +1 here it
means that there will be a JDO beta release without any further votes. A
vote is required on the actual distribution for an Apache release of JDO.

Or am I totally off base here.
