Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Official release dates / DOAP out-of-date
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2016 14:03:26 GMT
I prefer SVN dist date, but I know that isn't the easiest to come by ... I
recall approximating the date on a couple of occasions when i couldn't
figure it out readily. Another possibility is to use the archive,
https://archive.apache.org/dist/accumulo/, assuming that a release hits the
archive on approximately the same date that it is released to dist. Archive
is down sometimes, though.

Anyway, announce date would be fine too if we can't find a way to use the
actual distribution date.
