We're not a static community, the processes are being designed and
hammered out as we speak. And I'd hardly call a multi-year discussion
followed by a passing vote and a followup attempt to increase
consensus a whim.

The m2-incubating-repository was created [1] based on the fact that we
didn't  push out our releases to the mirrors. The mirroring
restriction was unanimously lifted a year ago [2] so the original
reason for having a separate Maven repository is gone. And there is no
other Maven repository or release distribution policy "stated on the
incubator pages".
