monday?)

don't see any reason to delay

works on WAS)

before release, conditions under

> [10:21] <Hesham> Hi all. sorry I'm late.. got snowed in this morning :(
> [10:22] <alek_s> i thik all is finished we jsut need to do more testing on
more platforms (i check

> [10:23] <nmukhi> Hesh I'm in Hursley, sitting here with JEremy and gang
> [10:23] <nmukhi> Hesh did you try running the JCA sample under app server
other than WAS?
> [10:24] <Hesham> no. Only WAS 5.0
> [10:24] <nmukhi> ok, we can mention that in the docs
> [10:25] <alek_s> shoul dwe make a separate 2.0 release document or have it
as part of chnages.html?
> [10:25] <alek_s> we will need also to prepare -email announcement message
with list of what is in release
> [10:25] <nmukhi> I think separate: release notes = changes.html + summary?
> [10:26] <nmukhi> can put summary portion of release notes in email
annoncement
> [10:26] <alek_s> yes
> [10:27] <alek_s> so could we just summarize it and see if it is OK with
everybody or what is needed more?
> [10:28] <alek_s> 1. more test ing on linux and solaris (alek)
> [10:28] <nmukhi> ok
> [10:28] <alek_s> 2. write release summary and detaield list of how samples
were tested

instead of RC4 (that will be then

> [10:29] <nmukhi> on (2) we just update existing sample docs
> [10:29] <alek_s> that leaves more time for testing
> [10:30] <alek_s> yes
> [10:32] <nmukhi> do you plan to cut RC4 and then cut 2.0 again?
> [10:33] <nmukhi> or is it just renaming rc4 to 2.0?
> [10:33] <alek_s> i was thinking: 2.0 == RC4 jsut renaming
> [10:33] <alek_s> just renaming
> [10:33] <nmukhi> ok, we'll need to make sure tags for both exist
> [10:33] <nmukhi> and are the same
> [10:34] <alek_s> yes
> [10:36] <nmukhi> cut RC4 tomorrow and rename on Monday?

time?
> [10:39] <alek_s> soudns fine
> [10:39] <Hesham> sounds good to me
> [10:39] <alek_s> should be enoiugh time to do any small chnages if needed

only then we promote it to 2.0
> [10:40] <alek_s> i hope so
