I am not aware of any policy that dictates that (but would love to see links.)
I am aware that releases MUST at least be distributed via
dist.apache.org [1], but that isn't exclusive, meaning the PMC is
welcome to distribute _released software_ via other means (PyPy, NPM,
Maven, Docker Registry, CPAN, Bintray, carrier pigeon, etc).
