So for the dependency manager we reasoned as follows:

1) When talking about releases within Apache, we are talking about source code. Releasing
that a subproject at a time makes sense to me as the code, even if it ends up in different
bundles, clearly belongs together.

2) Binary releases are a matter of convenience and “what is convenient” depends a lot
on where you’re coming from. A lot of people would argue that putting a binary in Maven
is convenient, but there are definitely other options. The binary releases also don’t have
to have a 1:1 mapping with the source, so we can have N bundles being put in Maven and other
repositories all from the same source release.

Greetings, Marcel
