Subject the beta bit
Date Fri, 11 Aug 2006 19:22:55 GMT
I'm getting dangerously close to building a beta candidate from the new 
branch. However, I'm confused about release numbering and the beta bit.

1) If no one objects, I'd like to change my mind and call this candidate beta. For purely esthetic reasons, I'd like to shoot for 
calling the first release candidate

2) And now for the beta flag. The instructions at 
http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/DerbySnapshotOrRelease tell me to make 
sure the beta flag is set to true in release.properties. It turns out 
that the flag is already set to true. When I build, the resulting 
sysinfo claims that the code is alpha, not beta. The release id is 
" alpha - (430831:430834)". This looks peculiar. What file needs 
to be tweeked to give this a beta rather than an alpha name?
