1.7.0-alpha1 tarballs up for testing/signing

At long request, we now have tarballs for the first 1.7.0 pre-release:
1.7.0-alpha1 ("phoenix-hatchling"). These were cut from trunk, and
the magic rev is r1130808. The buildbots were green at that rev, and
all tests pass for me locally. You can find them here:

This is an alpha release, and there are obviously known issues. The
purpose is to give distributors and downstream consumers a concrete
milestone against which to test, as well as vet our release processes
on ASF infrastructure. As you may expect, these prereleases are
intended for intrepid users and testers only.

As a reminder, there have been a few changes in the release artifacts
since the 1.6.x series. We no longer distribute a deps tarball, but
instead provide a get-deps.sh script for folks who want to fetch the
dependencies. There is no longer a 'to-tigris' directory in the
candidate directory. We no longer computer md5sums of the tarballs,
but continue to provide sha1sums to verify integrity. (There's
probably other stuff I've forgotten.)

I hope to get signatures from folks by the end of Tuesday, June 7, and
then do the public announcement. Historically, we've not required a
full set of signatures for alphas and betas, but it would be nice to
get at least some coverage besides just my own. As you send in your
signature announcement, please note any issues you found with the
alpha release (these will be included in the public announcement).
Please send sigs here:
