Subject Re: [VOTE] [POLICY] Allow extra release distribution channels like the central Maven repository
Date Tue, 23 Sep 2008 22:41:09 GMT
-1 from me.

It's very tempting to allow it, but in the end too dangerous to facilitate
downloads that are hidden from the end user and may be undesireable.

I suggest incubating projects put "how-to's" on their front page describing
how to link to the incubator repository.
