Subject [VOTE][SITE] Release Commons Skin 3 and Commons Parent 19
Date Sat, 12 Mar 2011 03:18:59 GMT
Please may I have your votes for Commons Skin 3 and Commons Parent 19?

The two have to be tested together because Commons Skin 3 is
referenced from Commons Parent 19.

If the vote for Commons Skin fails, then Commons Parent fails, but
Commons Skin can be released without Commons Parent, so please vote
separately for each. Thankyou!

Note: to test this you need to change the POM to reference commons-parent 19.

As this is not yet in an official repo, you will need to add the
following repository definition to your settings.xml (and use the
profile -PNexus):




Or you can add the <repositories> section above to your POM temporarily

Or, if you have downloaded the Commons Parent from the SVN tag, just
use mvn install.

Maven artifacts:
