Subject [VOTE] Release commons-dbutils 1.6 based on RC1
Date Tue, 04 Jun 2013 01:25:20 GMT
I would like to release commons-dbutils 1.6

commons-dbutils 1.6 RC1 is available for review here:
http://people.apache.org/~wspeirs/commons-dbutils-1.6-RC1/ (svn
revision r1489259)

Details of changes since 1.5 are in the release notes:
http://people.apache.org/~wspeirs/commons-dbutils-1.6-RC1/RELEASE-NOTES.txt

The tag is here:
http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/commons/proper/dbutils/tags/DBUTILS_1_6_RC1/

Site: http://people.apache.org/~wspeirs/commons-dbutils-1.6-RC1/site/apidocs/

Votes, please.  This vote will close in 72 hours

  [ ] +1 Release these artifacts
  [ ] +0 OK, but...
  [ ] -0 OK, but really should fix...
  [ ] -1 I oppose this release because...

For what it's worth, I expect this RC to fail as I feel confident I
did something wrong in the release process. The steps I followed I
documented here: http://people.apache.org/~wspeirs/release_steps.html

If someone with experience release versions of commons software could
walk me through how to do this properly I'd greatly appreciate it. I'd
even be willing to update the documentation found here:
http://commons.apache.org/releases/prepare.html

For me, and maybe I'm alone on this, I simply find all of the bits and
pieces that go into a release confusing and complicated: run this
maven command, then copy these files to your home directory, then do
something with Nexus (not even sure what that is), then delete those
files from Nexus because it uploaded too much, then God forbid you
want to change something after it was tagged. Why can't we have a few
manual steps (make changes to code, change version in pom, done) and
then a script that will generate the RC (doing all the copying and
building, etc) and another to actually package and push the final
release? I realize my contributions to commons are minimal, but I
could see myself doing more if cutting RCs and pushing final releases
were easier. Thoughts? Am I alone on this?

Thanks!
