But that won't make infrastructure very happy because that will create a
lot of traffic on Apache infrastructure if the release isn't mirrored.
Furthermore, we want to give out a signal that we're back in the
business and that means an announcement through various channels. And
that in turn will create traffic. I would strongly suggest we send it
out through the distribution system, i.e. a vote is necessary.
