Subject Re: [VFS] 2.1 Release Plan
Date Mon, 25 Apr 2016 22:10:27 GMT

Agreed, VFS 2.1 has been too long in the making. We can release ASAP
without fixing more bugs IMO. RERO and all.

As an Apache committer, your are also an Apache Commons committer, so feel
free to create JIRAs, fix bugs and so on.

There might be some karma issues with a non-PMC member performing a
release, and I think we just went through this (sorry, I'm in settling in a
new house, not much time to dig in the ML archives).

Does anyone recall?
