so what we have is

* committers voting on releases
* PMCs endorcing that decision by a vote to publish

At the end of the day we need to address the issue of wht rights the 
Incubator PMC has to endorce the publication of an artifact generated by 
a project prior to the exit of said project from the incubator. 
Publication by a Sponoring Entiry is a different subject - but 
publication by the Incubator is a loaded question.
