Hi Justin,

This looks good.

in your general notice about releases, please include a note about nightly
builds, and any other non-releases which communities can make.

In other words, after: "This includes docker, githubb, PyPi, npm and any
other platform for
publishing releases, and also covers release candidates." please add "This
does *not* include nightly builds, or other project *internal* artifacts
used for quality control and experimentation."

We don't want to be scaring off projects that have a healthy attitude
towards UX-testing. : o)

Thanks,
Myrle
