There is no way for the RM to be able to determine which bits of which
modules are stable or not - therefore it should not have to be up to
them to do this, but rather the module maintainers.

The maintainers of each of the modules should be responsible for keeping
a stable version of their module in the rollup tree. If the maintainers
screw up and commit a broken module and this is uncovered in release
testing, then the maintainers must fix it immediately, or the RM rolls
back the changes to the last known working release.

If a module remains consistently broken or unmaintained, the RM has can
put to vote the removal of the offending module until it is fixed... 

This way:

- Broken modules do not hold up the tree
- The RM can roll a release without going bald
- Users see a single unified apache release
- Apache's feature set remains consistent
