Hrm - I thought you had to have IP clearance before you even were
accepted as a podling.  Or maybe its just that Alan is such a great
Champion for us, that he helped us along that path before we even
submitted our proposal ;)

Under this assumption (that IP clearance exists already), it makes
much more sense to allow the podling to publish approved releases to
the central repository, but still under an
org.apache.incubator.projectname group id to maintain
