I'm finding this conversation perplexing, and, no doubt, I lack some 

Surely it's wonderful that someone is producing binaries for folks to 
try out, right? Why would we want them to be deleted, and not publicized?

Binaries are not (as has been discussed DOZENS of times) official 
releases. And anyone is free to take our code and push out binaries.

Can someone explain to me what the problem is here? We should be 
encouraging the work that Michal is doing, celebrating it, tweeting it, 
and encouraging everyone and their grandmothers to try out this new build.

What am I missing?
