Subject RE: [VOTE] Ant 1.5.4 Release Plan
Date Sun, 10 Aug 2003 07:17:50 GMT
+1 on the content of 1.5.4 and the overall plan!

> No long winded plan as this one should be rather trivial IMHO.

>   anyway).
> 
> * On Monday August 11th during the morning (GMT) the release manager
>   syncs the website changes from the HEAD branch to the 1.5 branch and
>   creates a 1.5.4 release from it.  Following the Release 
> guidelines in
>   our CVS module.

> * The release will be put into our distribution directory and the
>   release manager will call for a PMC vote on it.
> 
> * If the vote passes, the release will be announced to the public,
>   otherwise the files will be removed from the distribution area
>   again.
