to Quote Roy:
b) create a branch off of some prior Apache release point in svn
   and replay the internal Y! commits on that branch until the branch
   source code is identical to what you have tested locally.  Then
   RM a tarball based on that branch and start a release vote.
   Since the history is now in svn, others could do the RM bit if
   you don't have time.

Arun has chosen option (c), that Roy also mentioned as a valid way of doing it.

I think you are confusing a non-profit for a dumping ground. 
Any organization (non-profit or for-profit) has responsibilities, and their is always a tradeoff
between features and risk. Any organization can choose to not accept a donation. It comes
down to give-and-take

As Roy also mentioned, option (c) will be harder for others to test, and get consensus about
weather it is release worthy, let alone merge into 0.22.
