The "what must every release contain" doc says:

Every ASF release *must* contain a source package, which must be sufficient
for a user to build and test the release provided they have access to the
appropriate platform and tools. The source package must be cryptographically
signed <> by the Release
Manager with a detached signature; and that package together with its
signature must be tested prior to voting +1 for release.

We can mentor the podling to produce a separate source only tarball, but
this might be a point of confusion, because the candidate tarball here
conforms to the above language, I have personally built and tested this
release from the properly signed tarball. It is a source tarball also
containing compiled binaries.

Best regards,
