Yes, you missed the fact that Incubator is part of ASF, and the Incubator are 
doing the releases on behalf of the podling. 
AFAIUI, we are responsible of the legal aspects of the releases (i.e. upstream 
sources), but we have no practical responsibilities towards the downstream 

If the Incubator was not part of ASF, then that would be a different story... 
And I think the original intent was to come into that effect, but the legal 
reality is different.
