I'm just a lurker on the repo list, but I'd think that this would look  
like a ASF released and a consumer would assume that it had the  
blessing of the associated PMC.  If the source jars were prepared,  
posted people.apache.org/builds and a vote called on the appropriate  
mailing list to accept them for publication, then I could see placing  
them in the repo upon conclusion of a favorable vote.  Otherwise, it  
looks like a single committer just did an end-run around the ASF  
release policy.
