Please take it easy, this is not your personal responsibility. And we
caught it so no one died. It's something the PMC is responsible for.

Back in October I did not give your email enough consideration and
voted +1 on [6]. I thought all the artifacts were like the TLP pom.
Skins, check config files and some tooling configurations to use
existing JUnit extensions that already existed.

Only now did it occur to me that it's not so simple. I see code being
copied from 3rd party projects into the junit project and we're
releasing it. That triggered me to pay more attention.

No worries we'll fix this. Also the rule should ONLY be for the TLP
pom because of the technical drawbacks of resolving snapshot poms.
Let's set this line in the sand and not cross it together.

BTW we should not need a release to update the skins. Skins are not an
official release that's a product. They're just resources for our
project. We can tag and use them on our site.
