Subject incubator releases need to be under www.a.o/dist/incubator
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2007 00:08:59 GMT
At various times, various people have stated various rather
incongruent descriptions of what has to be done when a podling
performs a release

One thing that seems to have been forgotten is that an approved
release must be in the form of SOURCE CODE and must be placed
in the associated PMC's public distribution area under

and by doing so ALL of our releases get archived at

Aside from fulfilling the ASF's purpose as a foundation,
placing releases in the appropriate location means that they will
get mirrored correctly and archived automatically.  In turn,
that gives us a simple URI that can be used to direct government
inspectors for the export license page

The export regulations don't care whether a product is labeled
as incubating or not.  Therefore, placing incubating releases
somewhere other than regular releases is self-defeating.  The
Incubator PMC must ensure that approved releases are published
in the correct location after being approved, such that the
release is archived correctly, and the easiest way to do that
is to follow the same guidelines as all of the other projects.
