Infra manages the u/apache dockerhub org. We provide this service with the express caveat
that projects note that these are UNOFFICIAL releases, and CONVENIENCE BINARIES ONLY. How
much projects comply with this is unknown to me. It is a common thread in discussions of this
nature because the party line is “the ASF releases code” but the reality is that “people
consume binaries.”

Until that juxtaposition is well and truly addressed, these discussions will continue to happen
ad nauseam. I have not reviewed the threads on legal, I just popped in over here because Dave
Fisher pointed it out to me. 

We (Infra) always point out as the defining
document that describes official release channels.
