Subject Re: Release manager for 2.1.3 and/or 2.0.9.....
Date Fri, 03 Oct 2008 19:39:52 GMT
Hi Dan,

I have got a question about the new releases. Should we include the 
changes in the JMS transport in one of them?
Ron Gavlin asked to include the changes in the 2.0.x branch on the jira 
I could imagine to include them into 2.1.3 but I would rather leave them 
out of 2.0.9. What do you think? Are there some general guidelines how 
to handle this?

Is there already a time scale? I would like to include the upcoming new 
JMS configuration style in the release but this will take at least 
another one or two weeks.
