Subject [release] uploading jar distributions [WAS Re: [ANOUNCEMENT] Commons Collections 3.1-RC1 and 2.1.1 released]
Date Tue, 15 Jun 2004 21:33:43 GMT
i think probably that since the jar's are part of the same release  
process as the other artifacts packaged together as source and binary  
distributions you're right that a single vote is best.

i've completed the release cut for commons-logging-1.0.4 and am  
awaiting the mirrors syncing. that means i'll probably be finishing  
things off tomorrow.

i've uploaded the jar distributions to a staging area  
( together with md5  
sums and pgp signatures. would you be willing to manage the actual  
movement into the repository (since i made a bit a of a mess last  

BTW would it be a good idea to have either a repo website or (even  
better) a repo wiki where we can try to pull some of these processes  
and procedures together into useful documents.
