Just to reiterate, according to a
release is "anything that is published beyond the group that owns it",
so as soon as a release is made available for download on the ESME
website (as opposed to just being mentioned here) it is an Apache

Even naming it "junk release not to be used" won't make a difference,
if it's published it has to be voted on.

Naming an SVN tag or internally distributed tarball "release" doesn't
make it a release either - it's the act of publishing it beyond the
ESME group of developers (this mailing list) that makes a release and
requires a vote.
