Date Tue, 26 Aug 2014 12:57:07 GMT
Thanks so much, Rohit.

This is great. I'll work on getting it in the "project announcement" format, and will send
the draft back to the list before Friday.

If you can please keep me apprised of the projected timeframe, that would be great.

>Hi All,
>We recently voted for CloudMonkey 5.2.0 release and it passed:
>I’m facing some access issues while publishing cloudmonkey release over svn, until I
get either PMC or ASF infra folks to help me move the artifact on the svn repo. After 24 hours
the artifacts are published on the release dist, I’ll go ahead with announcing this if we’re
okay with the draft.
>Meanwhile, I’m sharing the announcement draft for your review and comments, especially
Sally’s so we have at least the announcement email ready.

is still allowed which sets a single “url” option, in the config file the [server] section
is deprecated now and cloudmonkey won’t read values from this section anymore but instead
read from currently selected server profile
