Subject Re: [ASF4.2.1] Release Notes
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2013 14:27:34 GMT
IMO, we should kill the CHAGES file and just get the release notes
document under control.  I'm fine if "Changes" is in bad shape for
this release personally, as long as the release notes are accurate.

Another thought to remind folks about in this thread:

Changes to the cloudstack.git repo's 4.2 branch that we want to be in
the 4.2.1 release will cause a re-spin and re-vote.

Changes to the documentation repo have nothing to do with the release
vote, except that we (as a community) seem to agree that our docs
should be at least updated and pushed to the website *before*
announcing 4.2.1.

Make sense?
