My understanding is that, for Apache, "release" is reserved for Source Code 
although <<http://apache.org/dev/release.html> although non-distributions are 
also producible and always built from a released source however.  

Diligence with respect to IP in binaries that come as project distributions 
still applies, including handling of LICENSE and NOTICE, only this time 
specific to the distribution.  There may be more about that.
