Subject Re: Github tagging, was Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Joshua 6.1 RC#2

Personally I think thats over doing it a bit on the T&C's, the PPMC hasn't
created the artifact, I could create a release of any project and slap it
on github and people could download it, doesn't make it "official" though,
its just those faux-releases are generated by github themselves not a user.
