Yes (I misread it) and no, it must not be broadcast to users@, or any
external list, until the PMC approves it... rereading from apachenews.

15 April 2006 - Apache Tomcat v5.5.17-beta Now Available

The Apache Tomcat team is proud to announce the immediate availability of Tomcat 

I would say the team did not announce this (there was no vote) but YS announced
this.  I know this seems like a longwinded thread over a silly nit, but there is
most definately a legal difference, and I just want to ensure all of our members
and committers protect themselves :)
