Possibly.  Have said before I think we need at least separate source
and binary release votes for all native artefacts.

We've had issues before with the native launcher build in the IDE
build script - we end up with two different paths by which people can
pick up the native binaries, not necessarily in sync.  Even more of an
issue with addition of Swift launcher.

It would be easier to vote and have them on Maven or dist.a.o so every
IDE build shares the same path.

It would also mean they're properly voted on before hitting any
distribution channel - at the moment it's a little chicken and egg.


Best wishes,
