Subject Re: Making a bugfix 0.11.1 release
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2018 18:38:42 GMT
hi folks,

Since the Python wheels are being installed 10,000 times per day or
more, I don't think we should allow them to be broken for much longer.

What additional patches need to be done before an RC can be cut? Since
I'm concerned about the broken patches undermining the project's
reputation, I can adjust my priorities to start a release vote later
today or first thing tomorrow morning. Seems like might be the last
item, and I can prepare a maintenance branch with the cherry-picked

Was there a determination as to why our CI systems did not catch the
blocker ARROW-3514?
