Subject Re: Preparing for first Apache Aurora release under ASF
Date Tue, 22 Apr 2014 16:55:08 GMT
Awesome, thanks for the update Jake.

I am +1 for you to be RM, but personally I think it would be good
experience for Aurora PPMC that is new to ASF to do this.
Would definitely help you to know the flow of how to release in ASF
while get some help from existing PPMCs and IPMCs since we are still
in incubator.
