I see you guys publishing two types of binary tarballs:
   1. Nightly builds
   2. Convenience binary associated with particular release of HAWQ

In both cases it is extremely important to make sure you're
not bundling any Cat X licensed binaries into the tarball
(most of the time this means GPL). As long as you don't
you should make sure that:
    1. Nightly builds are NOT advertised outside of your
    developer community. E.g. you can't link to them on
    the Download page of the HAWQ's website, etc.

    2. Convenience binary tarball is included in the formal
    release vote.

These are the basic rules. If you can give me a link to
a tarball available on Jenkins I can give you more feedback
on the content.

Hope this helps.
