Ok I wonder if this is just misunderstandings based on naming and
conventions. Could what you're calling here as an "unofficial beta
release" be the same as what other ASF projects might name a release
candidate? Is the 0.4.0 beta 1 just for other devs to review? If so
you probably don't need a vote. Also, whats the difference between
this and the latest Hudson nightly build?
