Exactly.  This doesn't state that "Releases for podling must be EXCLUSIVELY
distributed through www.a.o/dist/incubator/podling".

It was a statement to quit posting the release artifacts in the un-mirrored
corners, and that these are the first initial official release paths.
Previously these were scattered throughout on un-mirrored servers in a
fairly haphazard way.

So they must be shipped through /dist/incubator/podling or there is no
assertion that they are releases.  Once there, they travel unassisted
to dozens of mirror servers and on to other locations and uses.
