Subject Re: Looking for testing on the Struts upgrade
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2014 00:31:29 GMT
I did as much testing as I could, and I've gone ahead and pulled a release together - will
put a vote out now. We can always roll again if any blockers are found.

be needed unless you make changes. If you run mvn clean install in the webapp-test directory,
that will wipe out the whole installation and start over from the last built war, so there
should be no reproducibility issues due to existing data (though there might be some due to
general flakiness).

upgrade changed some of the HTML tags they rendered.
