Oh, the terminology got messed up long ago.  LOL  :-)  Even the term
"Release" has different connotations.  It is neutral in the HTTP Server

Nightly builds, Milestone builds and Release builds, so a Release is

We are trying to balance the need to support community development with the
idea that projects in the incubator shouldn't confuse the public over their
status by claiming the Apache imprimatur.
