Sam, I was asking what's in the release .. not making a complaint
about the process or anything like that. Yes, I know that any
committer can do anything.

OTOH, how do you think our users (customers) will react if we
have axis-tom-nightly.jar, axis-dick-nightly.jar, axis-harry-nightly.jar
etc.; that doesn't sound very "user friendly" to me. The really 
bleeding edge types who do want to see the direction of axis really
need to be on this list and need to be getting it off CVS IMO.

Again, what's in the current release? Is it all the proposals or
one or what? It says "axis-nightly.*" and I'm curious what's
in there.

Sanjiva.
