Subject [Vote] Release of Commons Validator
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2003 06:31:49 GMT
Commons Validator has recently undergone refactoring with a few bugs
fixed and documentation updates.

The following release plan is proposed for Validator 1.1.0:

    * /Tag Date/ - Tuesday, August 25, 2003, 23:59:59
    * /Release Manager/ - Robert Leland
    * /Alpha Release Announcement/ - To the following mailing list:
    * /Beta/General Release Announcement/ - To the following mailing lists:

The release process shall follow the same general procedures established 
for the Apache HTTPD project <> 
and Jakarta Commons products 
<>, and utilize the HTTPD 
numbering scheme.

The release will initially be given an Alpha status and made available 
through the Release Manager's home directory. Pursuant to a Majority 
Vote on the /commons-dev/ Mailing List, the release may be moved to the 
public release directory. The vote may also serve to reclassify the 
release to be of *Beta* or *General Availability* (GA) quality, as 
defined by the Apache HTTPD project. Subsequent votes may reclassify the 
release, either to promote it or to demote it, as need be.


There are currently 3 outstanding Bugs reports

Bug 20432 - The original bug was fixed, and another user reported a
            similar problem, but at a line number that looked unlikely.
Bug 20579 & 22124 Both deal with the Email validation.
            Unit tests have been added to cover these items so tests fail. 
            I propose that these bugs be marked LATER and  addressed in a 
            follow up release 1.1.1. 

           (NOTE Voting +1 for this release is also Voting for a 1.1.1,
            which maintains the compatability code)

Known existing Struts validator applications work correctly, in both english
and in French. Using Mozilla 1.4 & IE 6.

For this Release I also propose we update the jar dependencies to be on the
latest Commons release namely:
     commons-beanutils 1.6.1
     commons-collections 2.1
     commons-digester 1.5
     commons-logging 1.0.3    
     oro 2.0.7
     xml-apis 2.0.2
     junit 3.8.1

Finally I propose that we release the tip of the main trunk in CVS
as Commons Validator 1.1.0. A preliminary set of release notes has been
uploaded to the validator web site.

Vote:  Commons Validator 1.1.0 Release
[ ] +1 I am in favor of the release, and will help support it
[ ] +0 I am in favor of the release, but am unable to help support it
[ ] -0 I am not in favor of the release
[ ] -1 I am against this proposal (must include a reason).
