Subject Re: Next release

Well personally i'd like to see more than that. To graduate the
poddling should demonstrate it knows how to do ASF releases, the 0.8.0
release had some problems and it didn't demonstrate that, so now i
think it needs to be shown how thats going to be fixed, just saying
don't worry it will be fixed later isn't enough IMHO.
