Subject Re: I created a variant of the go runtime that is faster at init time

Hi Michele

This is shaky ground and we don’t want to be the next npm horror story.

Technically speaking, at Apache we primarily release source packages, all binary is pure convenience.
Granted the convience today is what most people use.

So what we should primarily do, as Bertrand hinted, is have a contrib repository. We can still
have a contrib docker account into which the OpenWhisk PMC can regularly „dump“ binary
builds for convience. But it must be clearly stated that those are not releases, have no release
quality and all the usual disclaimers.
