We usually don't release the TLP pom per se, it is only released if one 
other part is released, so we _have_ a formal vote (usually :), for the 
encapsulating project (apacheds, here).

What happened recently is just a catch up to fix some maven things in 
the TLP pom. We will have to release it if we want to release shared of 
apacheds, but until then, I still think it's unnecessary.
