What matters is how its advertised. By putting a link to SVN on a
'Downloads' page (and both above the fold and above the releases that
have been voted on) you seem to be encouraging normal users to consume
from SVN. Your releases (that have been voted on and approved by the
IPMC) are what you should be pointing the public to.

To quote http://apache.org/dev/release.html#what

"In our case, that means any publication outside the group of people
on the product dev list. If the general public is being instructed to
download a package, then that package has been released."

The entire release page is a good read and instructive.
