This was extracted (@ 2024-05-27 23:10) from a list of minutes which have been approved by the Board.
Please Note The Board typically approves the minutes of the previous meeting at the beginning of every Board meeting; therefore, the list below does not normally contain details from the minutes of the most recent Board meeting.

WARNING: these pages may omit some original contents of the minutes.
This is due to changes in the layout of the source minutes over the years. Fixes are being worked on.

Meeting times vary, the exact schedule is available to ASF Members and Officers, search for "calendar" in the Foundation's private index page (svn:foundation/private-index.html).

Convenience Binaries

20 Nov 2019

 Official Apache releases are source code. But we have allowed
 "convenience binaries" to be created and even hosted on Apache
 infrastructure. Further, we have allowed projects to vote on, approve,
 and publish these artifacts as if they were official releases. And
 some of these artifacts are signed by Apache infrastructure tools. And
 some of these artifacts contain Category X components.

 I'd like to revisit the topic of convenience binaries and establish
 some ground rules for PMCs to follow.

 @Myrle: work with Roman to lead discussion on this
