Subject Re: Release Manager Volunteers?
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2011 07:56:40 GMT
Why should you limit to just one volunteer?

The idea is that the procedure in should be
followable by any Cassandra committer.

I would propose that the release manager is the person who steps up to
run the release for that specific release. If it is just one person
always making releases then that becomes a SPOF... better to have more
than one and round-robin it, or have one do the stable releases and
the other do the new releases...

I'd volunteer as well only I don't have commit access... (I have
access to publish to maven central on behalf of cassandra, but that's
a whole other story)
