There's another, more serious issue: the release hasn't been voted on
yet, and there's no guarantee that the current candidate artefacts will
be released. For example, no-one has even run RAT on the artefacts yet,
as far as I know (I'm working on that and hope to get it done tonight).

You should never, ever blog about a non-existent Apache release as if it
was a done deal. This is seriously bad behaviour. The blog post even
calls the release 'available' and provides a download link, even though
there has not been a single +1 vote from PPMC yet, let alone IPMC. You
really should think twice before publishing.

I'm going to have to ask you to remove that blog post and issue a
retraction. Which means, publicly say that you jumped the gun and the
thing isn't released yet.
