Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Commons-Validator 1.1.1 released
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2003 20:27:18 GMT
Sorry. Then for now we should withdraw this release,
do the vote(s) then rerelease ? I'll remove the release
for now until there is some guidance.

This is also an issue for Struts 1.2.1 which also intends
to use this same set of rules ?
