Can we agree that regardless of which style one might prefer the packaging,
there are multiple valid approaches, and that this level of difference
should not be a release criteria for the Incubator?

The Mentors can and should engage the community on best practices.  When the
Incubator PMC is presented with a release to approve, we ought to focus on
actual requirements, such as:

	Signing (if we choose to enforce this)

And what those actual requirements are should be documented so that the
projects aren't surprised when submitting their request.  If we decide to
add requirements, we should agree to add them to the release requirements
