They may want that: but that doesn't mean they will get it.

Personally I'm pretty frustrated at the insinuation that anything we
did for 3.6 is questionable, we spent a shitload of time trying to
make sure there was no .jar files in source release, no fake maven
releases of other peoples code, no sketchy links to anything on apache
infra, or anything like that.

Seeing that I (and a bunch of other people) stayed up for many long
nighters to clean this crap up, I'm willing to stand up for it: so
like I said I have no concerns at all.

If anyone in the PMC is concerned with how the dependencies for 3.6
were managed in that release, then speak your mind. But nobody voted
against it so I can only hope that you have a minority opinion here.
