Don't our release policies cover all the stuff that's in releases and 
derivations thereof?  What's the rationale to separate documentation 
from everything else that's in a release?

I'm actually trying to keep the policy straightforward and consistent: 
ASF content that's subject to release votes should only be published to 
non-developers after it's been released.  Posting trunk documentation 
seems very similar to posting a nightly build.  Both are permitted, but 
not only via developer-specific pages, not in a way that can be 
construed as an official distribution.
