Agreed. And it would be helpful if the Repository team was aware, as the
rest of infrastructure is, that releases must be voted on by a PMC. If
there is a request for publication, it should be cc'd to the PMC and made
sure that the PMC doesn't raise a flag. That's the same as we do when
creating new accounts, lists, etc.
One factor, unique to the Incubator, is that we have a concept known as a
PPMC, which consists of the PMC and others. For a release, we should make
sure that the both the PPMC and PMC mailing lists are cc'd.

Absolutely. However, in this specific case, JaxMe has been voted to the WS
PMC, who will be responsible for it.
