But, it also makes it incredibly hard for people outside that exclusive 
circle to participate. If you force people to use file releases instead 
of a shared repository there can be no meaningful community 
participation in the process.
For instance, if people would like to explore the recently submitted 
alternate unix socket implementation they need to send around files 
instead of pointing people to branch XYZ of the repository.

And, certain VM platform versions have lagged for months in the past as 
there are single person responsibilities.
