Why?  In the case of C/C++ programs, the builds are generally done on
multiple platforms.  And that may also be why they post releases and THEN
vote on them, rather than just voting based upon the CVS.  It gives people a
chance to make sure that the build was done properly.  I recently pointed
out that a very large percentage of an Avalon release candidate consisted of
many replicated dozens of copies of the Apache License file.  I would not
have been able to point that out if there weren't an actual Release
Candidate to evaluate.
