You betcha! An Apache release can even be broken code (although  
generally we discourage that). As long as the community wants to  
release, we release. We get lots of help from the mentors and the rest  
of the incubator PMC to be sure that what we release is properly  
identified as Apache licensed or has a compatible license and out we go.
