Subject Re: Releases during incubation?

It has to do with intent: is your intention to release outside of the
Incubator and the ASF because you don't want to do the work to make
them compliant, or are you releasing for the benefit of your existing
user base so they don't have to rewrite their code (package rename?),
or get some security/quality patch and intend to release soonish from

It's perfectly fine to have two tracks: one servicing your existing
community members while you get your act together at Apache, and the
early adopters who are already at Apache.

How you keep servicing the existing community with its older code base
is up to your members. The non-Apache releases don't get the
protection of the ASF so you should move quickly.
