As I have said for the 3rd time, of course I get that people need to be flexible and there
has always been an implied "use your head".  But, as I said, given you wrote it on the heels
of the discussion around Maven and that you think we shouldn't publish Maven artifacts, I
think it is clear you intend it to imply that the RM gets to chose what artifacts are released.
 Is that not the case?
