Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Cordova-Android 6.1 Release
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2016 19:55:16 GMT
Hey

We're getting some hiccups on the 6.1 Android Release with Travis.  I'm not
able to reproduce on the local machine, so we think that it's a travis
error with updating packages, so we're going to go ahead with the vote
again.  Sorry for the delay today.
