Subject Re: [DRAFT] Apache Commons Board Report, March 2008
Date Wed, 12 Mar 2008 12:18:03 GMT
Couple of things missing:

 - Gary Gregory joined the PMC
 - FileUpload 1.2.1 was released

Another point, perhaps not relevant to the report - although we did
one m1 release (Pool 1.4) that included OSGi metadata - I doubt I will
do that manually again, so probably releases will only include OSGi
metadata if we use m2 as the primary build tool for releases. Do we
want to make using m2 a commons-wide policy? All but two components
(jelly and attributes) have m2 builds, so IMO it would be a good idea.
