EXACTLY.  I'm reading about 1/2 the -1 votes against Maven-releases as
against *releases*.  Which is absurd.  The current situation of .jar

the appropriate solution.

Even if it doesn't kick them out the door.  Perhaps the real policy to
revisit is permitting ASF Projects to depend on Incubating efforts,
beyond beta releases.
