+## Do I need to talk to Infrastructure before distributing a release? {#heads-up}
+
+Most projects can just distribute a release as described in the previous two
+questions.  However, releases that are likely to strain the mirroring and
+download resources **must** be coordinated with infrastructure.
+
+Releases of more than 1GB of artifacts require a heads-up to Infrastructure in
+advance.
+
+Specific exemptions from other dist policies (such as what may or must or must
+not be distributed via the mirrors) also need to be coordinated with Infrastructure.
