Subject Re: 10.2 release in August?
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2006 21:52:05 GMT
If there is a good chance of Mustang and JDBC4 being ready by Sept/Oct, we
should avoid another release in August. Rick doesn't seem to foresee a
Mustang schedule slip and given
incomplete nature of Grant & Revoke authorization, I vote to keep one
release in Sep/Oct.
