For future releases, does it make sense to have a tarball source
distribution? I don't mind it being distributed primarily via the
Maven repository, but it might be useful to be able to download a
source tarball. Some ASF'ers might feel it's a requirement to deliver
such a thing through the dist mirrors to call it an Apache release,
but I'm not sure.

I'm sorry, I'm changing my vote to Beta. I should've thought this
through more. There are two reasons I'm going with beta.
1. This is the first release of a refactored codebase. I think it
should start no higher than beta. If at some point, we decide the
release is of GA quality we can vote to promote it to GA.
2. I think we need to create an assembly for this and put it on the
dist site. I know it's just a Maven plugin, but we want users to be
able to download the source packages from our dist site, run a build,
and use them.
