Subject Re: End November Deadline for 1.4
Date Thu, 11 Nov 2004 06:13:28 GMT
+1 for having an alpha and beta .. if there are no problems we can
move from alpha -> beta -> final pretty fast.

Has someone written a release plan for 1.4? That MUST be written
per Apache rules. Who's going to be release manager?

Sanjiva.
