First of all, an Apache Release means something that has undergone a PMC vote.
I doubt that you vote on everyone of your nightly or snapshot releases
at the PMC
level and hence they can NOT be considered a proper ASF release.

Coming back to your original question: convince binaries simply means
binaries that
PMC had a chance to vote on (just like they do for the source release). Once PMC
votes on a set of binary artifacts they are allowed to be distributed
as part of the
release and they are called "convenience binaries".
