Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Commons Collections 3.2.2 Based on RC2
Date Wed, 11 Nov 2015 20:55:39 GMT
Hi Thomas,

build works fine with Java 1.6 on Windows 10, artifacts and site look
good. So +1.

Unfortunately, I have currently not the time to dig deeper into the
problematic addressed by this release; so I cannot comment on the fixes.
As I do not have a current project that depends on collections 3.x, I
cannot test the release in the wild either. So this is more a technical
review.

Oliver
