If the source is to be release in multiple archive formats, then they
must all be voted on.
Only source that has passed the vote may be released.

That is part of the release checking process, tedious though it is.

There is a Perl script that can be used to compare directory structures:

https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/tools/releases/compare_dirs.pl

I disagree here - if a project releases binaries, it's important that
these are reviewed to check that the contents look OK.
For example, LICENSE and NOTICE files appropriate to the contents,
DISCLAIMER file for Incubator releases etc.

I agree here.
