The #1 ASF rule is common sense.  Sure if a release of ADS or Studio encapsulates shared which everyone knows then there's no need to vote on the shared release.  This is implicit.  If someone has an issue with shared they can -1 the ADS or Studio vote pointing out the shared issues.

I would like to get your opinion.

Do you have some reason to think that releasing stuff without a pmc vote is allowed by apache rules?    I really thought that was the one inalterable and inescapable duty of the PMC.
We will _not_break any apache rule, if we consider that we will release a subproject after having vote for the encapsulating release. That's the key. Again, if we release ADS after a vote, we release in the same time daemon, installers, shared and project. I don't see why we should launch 4 sub-votes in this case.

Now, if we have to release a sub-project per se, then a vote would be necessary.

Regarding the TLP pom.xml, again, it should _not_ be released alone, but must be released after a vote of a release of ADS or shared.

So if I gave the impression that I allowed a release of the TLP pom.xml alone without a vote, I'm sorry about that, it was my mistake.

thanks !
