	Yes, you are misunderstanding.

	1) Officially (legally?), source code distributions are "the release."  Any and all binaries
are considered to be convenience binaries so users don’t have to compile.  They are not
official.   [Statements like “verify a release by rebuilding” don’t really parse as
a result.]  

	2) As far as I’m aware/all the projects I’ve ever worked with, the uploads to Nexus are
to the snapshot repo, not the release repo.  The release repos are still done manually.
