If we are comfortable with distributing RC materials outside of Apache
channels, then yes.  I'm not clear on that.  Have other ASF projects done
something similar?  If nobody knows, perhaps we might ask on general@incubator?

BTW, I verified that "TRIAL1" (with the added "1") will work against the
current PAUSE code.  All that matters is that the filename contain the string
"TRIAL" (i.e. Lucy-0.3.0-ATRIAL-FIBRILLATION.tar.gz would work, too):

    if (
      $dist =~ /\d\.\d+_\d/
      $dist =~ /TRIAL/
      $dist =~ m|/perl-\d+\.\d+\.\d+-RC\d+\.|x
    ) {
