I understand the resolution as follows:

Releases are for source only. The source can have a dependency on JBurg which the user would
download themselves if they are installing from source. I guess we should include instructions
to install from Source, so that’s an option for users. But we’d include a link so they
could install using “convenience packages” as well.

Any “convenience packages” would be hosted outside and not be part of the official release
process. The installer which would install the SDk along with Falcon and JBurg would fall
in that category and be hosted on Github. Since the installer is not an “official Apache
release”, it could be modified on Github as much as we want with no voting required.
