Re: [VOTE] Hadoop release candidate 1.2.0-rc1
Hmm.  My understanding was that only sources constituted a "release" and
that all release votes were to be understood as votes on a body of source
code. However, we've always (at least for the last 2+ years that I've been
involved in the RM side) distributed binary tarball (and often rpms and
debs), ALONG WITH the source tarball, for the convenience of our many users
who don't care to do builds before using a release.  The binaries and
source-containing artifacts are all signed for tamper-resistance, and when
a Release Manager distributes a set of stuff, the binaries should be
understood to come from the same build as the source tarball -- as is
indeed the case here.

Furthermore, I believe the Hadoop-related projects make use of a Maven
server.  I don't believe it's distributing source only :-)

I totally agree that the official release is the sources.  But to go from
there to a prohibition on distributing objects would, I think, cripple the
project, and certainly goes against the tradition of common usage in
opensource projects, including many Apache projects.

Respectfully,
--Matt
