Sigh. Apache is a volunteer organization with a history and a culture.
As a volunteer organization, it cannot possibly create and maintain a
set of documents that describe every bit of cultural norm and
historical context.

New committers on existing projects learn from their communities.
Podling members learn from their mentors.

Even out here on general@, I've seen several iterations of some AOO
people asking about signed builds and binary releases and experienced
Apache members offering answers. This is how it works. Legal-discuss@
and board@ are *not* the normal way to answer these questions.

Writing for myself, I see how the AOO situation differs from just
about any previous project, and why AOO people would want a different
answer to the question. And, over time and a whole lot of effort, a
different answer may be forthcoming. However, until then, it is what
it is, and a thread here is not going to change it.
