Subject Re: Release hell WAS: [VOTE] Release Apache Commons Codec 1.5-RC1
Date Wed, 30 Mar 2011 02:24:15 GMT
I've just double-checked, and the staged files were released at 29
March 2011 06:21 which is less than a day ago.

The files in the staging repo are dated Fri Mar 25 01:34:08, which is
what made me think it was taking too long.

So I won't send the e-mail yet.
