Subject [VOTE]: Getting 1.6 out the door
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2003 09:58:39 GMT
Hi,
I would like to propose a release plan for voting :
- features included in 1.6 : all the features currently present in head
- freeze date for 1.6 branch : Monday, September 22 13:00 GMT
- availability of ANT_16_B1 binaries : within one week of the freeze of the
branch.
The exact time will depend on whether I will have trouble with practical
issues from the build down to the signing of the jar files to the update of
the web site, of bugzilla, ...
- release manager : myself

(I hope this is OK, although I am not a PMC member).

So, if this release plan is voted, on Monday, September 22 I will create the
ANT_16_BRANCH tag.
The CVS Head will then become ant 1.7alpha


Cheers,

Antoine
