Subject Re: [VFS] 2.1 Release Plan
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2016 17:52:24 GMT
Best as I can see, Benson was able to do the commons-io 2.5 release 
after someone else added his key to the KEYS file (because had some 
separate karma being applied to it which was not included in the 
universal-commit change).

Consider this my formal volunteer offer to be RM for commons-vfs 2.1.
