Thanks for putting the bits together Greg!

Two high-level comments:

1) The *test* artifacts aren't meant to be distributed via releases,
or used for anything beyond local testing, IIRC. (the usecases apps
are meant to demo features). I would prefer we leave them out, to
avoid many differences in this point release. You should be able to
just blow those *test* directories / artifacts away in the m2 staging
repo / dist area.

2) In the ballot below, can you please revise the first couple of
lines to read ...

[ ] +1 for beta release (Binding, PMC members only)
[ ] +1 for beta release (community members who have reviewed the bits)

... or some such. The important bit is to note the initial quality as
beta. This is one of the things I did not do when posting the CfV for
v1.0.4 (and we had to clarify that in a separate thread later). This
way the release announcement can state the initial quality to be beta
(and that it will potentially be revised later).

Also, I think we can even do away with the PMC / otherwise distinction
in the ballot. I'll leave that to you.

These changes are fairly superficial, so shouldn't require any
rebuilding (and this vote thread can continue, IMO).
