Tarballs on our server, falling under different release guidelines. In my
emails on this topic, I've been trying to distinguish between "podling
releases" and "Apache releases". As Ralph said, why a disclaimer, if there
isn't a difference in the nature of these tarballs/releases?

Historically, demonstrably, we have applied a different policy to "podling
releases" that is a bit more lenient. Once the podling graduates, it must
conform to the formal Apache release guidelines.
