Mark Struberg is an army of one when it comes to release policy.  Frankly the custodians of
the policy are not subscribed to this list so I'm puzzled as to why it's being kicked around

Also interesting for me to discover in this thread that the release policy is not adhered
to by all ASF projects. We were lead to believe the rules are immutable, all projects obey
them. End of story.

verifciation SHOULD be the job of a computer (aka CI system) and not a human and I am very
happy to hear there is precedent for this with other projects.
