Ant, I really don't know why we are having this discussion... I have voted
on multiple releases where you have been the RM and you have done the right
thing by putting up for vote the source tarball, binary tarball, and even
the staged maven repository. Also, for the Chukwa case, we have proposed
they go ahead and do a maintenance release (even if it's just a revote of
the tag with maybe increasing the minor version of the release) which
shouldn't be a big deal.
