Subject Re: [configuration] Should we update the current version?

hi eric

promotion is basically a beauty contest.

there are a number of issues which usually effect how people vote but they 
are a fluid. here are some issues which (IMHO) effect the voting:

* evidence of compliance with the commons charter. this means having the 
right documents in place (a PROPOSAL, a STATUS and so on). it also means 
auditing your dependencies and ensuring compliance with general apache 
rules. the PROPOSAL needs to be fall within the scope of the commons 

* the scope of the PROPOSAL. (in keeping with the charter) tightly scoped 
PROPOSALs are preferable.

* the health of the development community. fellow committers need to be 
persuaded that users will be supported and the code pushed forward by the 
listed committers. this is a major issue since there's only a limited 
amount of energy amongst the commons committers and no one wants to have 
to support a component whose committers have gone AWAL.
