To add to the general empathy, I'd say that this particular module,
which downloads (and I initially thought also installs, but it looks
like it's not the case in the end) binaries from non-ASF sources,
makes all kinds of alarms go up in my ASF old-timer brain.

Releasing a more usual code module would hopefully have been much
easier, though the first releases of a new podling are often hard and
frustrating - on one side the ASF's requirements for a release are
quite strict (for good reasons), and also the Incubator docs could be
much clearer about what's expected.
