Subject RE: [VOTE] Release of Apache IvyDE 2.0.0.alpha1
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2008 15:49:58 GMT
This effectively means you do not want non-committers to test this proposed alpha release.
Personally I believe this contradicts to the Apache Release FAQ http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html
which states:
 
During the process of developing software and preparing a release, various packages are made
available to the developer community for testing purposes. (...) Test Packages are not Apache
releases. All releases require due process and official approval. Test packages are for testing
ongoing development and should only be discussed on the project development lists. 
 
Then again, if you do not want developer testing, I'm fine with it.
 
Kind regards,
Erik-Berndt

good catch. Actually I will rename the 2.0.0 version to 2.0.0.alpha1
And the issues not fixed I will move them to a new 2.0 version.

these are in my UNIX home directory on people.apache.org, only committers have
access to it.

(a release to be accepted by the PMC should be more visible to the public ? as
far as I remember the apache guidelines it should not)
