Subject Re: Validation of release packages
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2010 12:26:35 GMT
I really hate depending on anything SNAPSHOT during a release.
Although of course you could give it a date-based version, just
creating a new maven plugin for that for the first OpenCMIS release
seems overkill. Can't we do things partially by hand for now?

Anyway, ok for the code freeze at 3PM CET.
