Subject Re: [VOTE] Drop incubating requirement of Maven artifacts
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2017 12:52:21 GMT
James,

I don't believe the question is about not using it.  It's required on all
source releases.  The fundamental question at hand is whether that tag
should be applied to generated convenience binaries or not.

Right now, the incubator website says its only required on binaries if
you're using maven as your build tool.
