Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Drill 0.6.0-incubating release
Date Mon, 13 Oct 2014 14:14:03 GMT
For many projects, especially "library" projects, the "convenient binaries" that matter most
these days are the jars (source, binary, and javadoc) that are deployed to the maven repo.
Calcite releases in fact do not currently include a binary tar ball, only a source tar ball
and maven jars. 

Are these jars subjected to due diligence during the release vote? It seems to me that each
of those jars is a de facto binary release.

(Not that I think there is too little due diligence! We've been on the receiving end of a
fair amount recently.)
