Subject Re: [VOTE] Moving Proxy to Commons Proper
Date Sat, 15 Oct 2005 10:28:17 GMT
hi james

IMO it would be better to make this a proposal. quite often, small
changes will are needed and discussion required. votes tend to get a
little confused and lost when that happens. usually, it's a bit cleaner
to make a proposal then move to a vote when there are no remaining
objections.

being ready for an official release is one of my personal criteria for
promotion (so that's good). part of being ready is demonstrating to the
community that the committers know how to cut commons releases. 

might i suggest that you cut an example release candidate and upload it
to your apache home directory. not only will this speed the time taken
to cut the first release (we can spot any problems now rather than
later) but it will also give us a better idea of where proxy actually is
right now.
