I was providing the converse: has the IPMC been told *not* to make podling
releases? Where such releases conform to its own policy, rather than the
Foundation policy?

I'm stipulating that "podling release" != "Foundation release", so
different policies apply.

I'm saying that a "podling release" is not an "official [Foundation]

The disclaimer says "the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF".
So I'm saying that the podling release does not have to conform to ASF
release policy because it is *explicitly stated* that it is not a release
endorsed by the Foundation.
