No, actually this is because the 2014.1.2 tarball is still completely
wrong. The tag is now OK, but due to some stale workspaces in our CI the
tarball was still generated from the wrong (Juno) tag.

I'll upload a new tarball ASAP. I took down the wrong one. Sorry for the
inconvenience... the issues here are not a policy problem, they are just
human error in the original tag, complicated by CI staleness that made
us think we fixed it while we didn't.
