   Created release plan

New Page:

= Commons Logging 1.0.5 ReleasePlan =

== Background ==

JCL 1.0.4 was release in July. The 1.0.x codebase is mature and most of the limitations of
the design are well understood. A small number of improvements have been made since this release
some very important for some use cases. There is now considerable interest in pushing JCL
onwards from this codebase. The time seems apt for the release of JCL1.0.5

== Status ==



= Pre-Release Tasks =

Anyone who wants to volunteer for a task, just add something

== Documentation Review ==

 * Ensure that javadocs and website are up to date.
 * The new optional distribution which offers enhanced memory recycling in some environments
needs documentation creating.

== Bug Review ==

== Bug Fix ==

== Test Compatibility ==

As a point release, this should be fully backwards compatible. This needs checking.

== Release Notes ==

This will be prepared in the traditional way (by using CVS commit logs). 


= Release Plan =

== Repository ==

A release branch will be taken as soon as the preliminary work is complete. This will allow
work to continue on HEAD. If possible, this step should be postponed until after jakarta commons
is converted to SVN.

== Release Notes ==

Any changes made after the branch is taken and code frozen will be added as they are made.

== Release Candidate ==

A release candidate will be prepared. Since backwards and future compatibility with Log4J
is of crucial importance, users and developers will be asked to test their current installations
with the release candidate. 

Therefore a suitable gap (to allow this testing) will be left between the announcement of
the release and the release vote. Committers will be encouraged to test this RC on their own
application before VOTEing +1.


= Post Release =

== Process Bugs Marked Later ==

= Comments =

 * Version compiled on jdk1.4 doesn't seem to work on JDk1.3. Therefore,  the jdk14Logger
needs to be compiled with 1.4 and everything else with 1.3 for the release.
