Surely the _source_ distribution does not contain binaries? How else can
you vote on a release if you don't know what it contains?

You can produce convenience downloads that contain binary files, yes,
but surely you need a source-only package which is the one you vote on,
that does not contain any binaries. Do you have such a thing? And where
may I find it?

With regards,

a source code release should only contain source code and not binaries, as you cannot verify
the content of these.
