Subject Re: [jelly] proposal: taglib/core releases
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2005 23:09:03 GMT

I saw square brackets, "release" and +1's from the jelly developers and 
saw that as a green light. My mistake.

I was going to come back and follow the doc to do the distributions and 
so on, as I had run out of time last night, but I'll hold off here for now.

- pull these all back down again, start again with an RC3 vote?
- put up a retrospective [vote] thread and once ok, finish the RC2 
release from the tag.
- use the published JAR (it is in java-repository, so is under dist but 
not on the downloads page or up as a tarball) as an RC in the 
traditional sense according to the commons doc and put forward a vote 
for 1.0.

I'm in favour of the last one as it is closer to the commons doc, and I 
never liked the practice of naming something a release candidate when it 
isn't really ready for a final release anyway.
That will depend on whether the other Jelly people think it is ready - 
I'm only able to look at it from Maven's perspective. Along those lines, 
if anyone else is interested in preparing the releases, please say so. I 
can chip in the time to get it done or help if needed, I was just 
stepping up here because everyone else seemed busy.
