Thanks for the feedback.

I’ll remove this.

IP = Intellectual property

The intention was source releases (but both can be placed there), I’ll update it to say

It means you can’t make a release from a random point in version control. Releases distributed
on other platforms need to come from what was contained in a voted releases. Can you suggest
some better wording? Perhaps simplifying to “Convenience binaries need to be made from IPMC
approved ASF releases” is better?

I agree how about "Apache projects make source releases but can if needed provide convenience
binaries to end users.”?
