Podlings cannot do Releases because they are not Projects established  
by the Board. However, the artifacts produced by them are voted on  
and approved by the Incubator PMC and hence are official Releases by  
the Incubator Project and hence by the ASF. This is essential if the  
artifacts and their authors are to receive any legal protection  
though being product of or actions by the Foundation.

As these are official Releases by the Incubator Project then I think  
they should go through the normal distribution channels as used by  
other TLPs. There are already enough indicators for users that these  
are incubating work (distribution location, file name, prominent  
disclaimer in content and on website).
