Subject [pool] Release process
Date Sat, 23 May 2009 19:41:28 GMT
Perf testing has gone well so far.  I have one more batch of javadoc / 
ridiculously-long-line elimination changes to commit and then I will cut 
an RC.   There are a couple of things that I want to get community input 
on before plowing forward with the RC.

0) @author tags.  This has been discussed several times before.  These 
are way out of date and none have been added since we stopped adding 
@author tags here about 4 years ago.  I am OK leaving as is, but want to 
let others weigh in on maybe eliminating them from the sources. 

1) Release process.  I am NOT planning on using the maven release 
plugin.  I will get working assemblies to create tarballs, make tags, 
named RC1, 2 (NOT "mutable" release tags) and push the tarballs and jar 
artifacts manually to the mirror/repo locations.  For the RCs, I will 
keep RC* names in the artifact and jar names. Once an RC passes 
inspection, I will tag and roll a "final" RC with RC tag name, but final 
release-named artifacts and kick off a release VOTE.  If the VOTE 
passes, I will deploy the voted-on artifacts and copy the tag.    Pls 
scream now if this is not acceptable.  I prefer this method because I 
know exactly what is going on at each stage and it keeps tags and RCs
