Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache DataFu 1.3.0 (incubating) release to maven

Hello, Matthew,

Only the source release is an official Apache release requiring a VOTE:

  The Apache Software Foundation produces open source software. All releases
  are in the form of the source materials needed to make changes to the
  software being released.

  As a convenience to users that might not have the appropriate tools to build
  a compiled version of the source, binary/bytecode packages MAY be
  distributed alongside official Apache releases. In all such cases, the
  binary/bytecode package MUST have the same version number as the source
  release and MUST only add binary/bytecode files that are the result of
  compiling that version of the source code release and its dependencies.

This VOTE is not necessary and should not be completed.  Assuming that the
binary package adheres to the requirements spelled out at the link above, you
should already have what you need to distribute it in accordance with Release
Distribution Policy:

Hope this helps,

Marvin Humphrey
