You intend to "prohibit" releasing binary packages for upstream? Thats...
something you don't see everyday. Why would you do that?
It's quite common for Java projects to release pre-built JAR files or for C/C++
(or other) based projects to release debs or rpms - it's standard practice.
What's important in quoted sentence is: "Release the source archives along with
binary archives" - the "with" is very important - in short: don't release only
binary versions and force us to grab them from VCS.
