Subject Re: [VOTE] Graduate ACE from the Apache Incubator
Date Thu, 17 Nov 2011 12:29:38 GMT
I'm not sure what this has to do with the graduation vote. The release
as such has been accepted by the incubator pmc and there only need to
be one release. The source for each artifact is there, it is just per
artifact in the -source.jar.

There might be different set-up then a lot of other projects have it
but we release our stuff on a per artifact basis how it is done by for
example Apache Felix as well and never has been an issue (and didn't
become unmanageably either -  also ymmv).

I agree about the KEYS file. We should have uploaded it to the dist
dir as well but at least we have it at some place so it should be easy
to fix.
