Thanks for thinking about this, Justin!

FWIW, the first few sentences are a pastiche drawn from various policies and
Roy emails[1], while the chunk on security is me elaborating on a concern Roy
expressed about trojan horses and can presumably be improved.

For now, I suggest adding a blob to the Incubator's giganto
releasemanagement.html page.  That's not the ideal place for it, it's just a
placeholder so that it doesn't get lost.

The thing is, Apache's release policy docs are about to get a significant
streamlining[2].  I think info like this belongs in an official _Release FAQ_,
but that doesn't exist at the moment.  The closest thing we have is the
official _Releases Policy_ page at <>, which
I don't want to mess with right now.
