Subject Re: Release manager for 2.1.3 and/or 2.0.9.....
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2008 17:13:29 GMT


Willem,

Thanks for volunteering to do this.   That's great.

I think it would be good to do 2.0.9 late this week and probably 2.1.3 
middle of next week.   (need to do 2.0.x first due to an "issue" with 
the maven stage plugin which will update the "latest" tag in the 
metadata with 2.0.9 so 2.0.9 would get picked up instead of 2.1.2.  
Thus, we would want 2.1.3 shortly thereafter to restore a 2.1.x version 
as latest).

I have a couple of fixes I'm going to try and get in to 2.1.x this week.   
We also should update to bouncycastle 140 and xalan 2.7.1 for both 2.1.3 
and 2.0.9.   With those versions, we can actually distribute 
bouncycastle and thus ws-security can work "out of the box" and not 
require downloading additional jars.

Dan
