Thanks, Rahul. Just to clarify, you're suggesting that we include the
usecase apps in the release, but *not* include the *-test artifacts
(except the ones that are core, like shale-test itself), correct?

I don't have a problem with that. IIRC, other projects (Struts, Tiles)
don't specify the quality at all until after the release is posted.
They just push a release and later declare it alpha, beta, or GA. I
don't mind specifying initially that this will be beta if that makes
people more comfortable voting.
