Subject Re: Release of Apache JDO beta/snapshot ?

Releases from the incubator are fine. The release needs to say "in  
incubation" somehow, and the Incubator PPMC has the final say on it  
(release is technically by the incubator PPMC).

Process to do so (I think):

1) Release manager (RM) tags said release candidate

2) RM builds binaries, signs em, and makes them available to the  
incubator PPMC. This is *not* a release and should not be publicized  
as such.

3) Start vote for release on incubator list.


nb: I personally feel that putting binaries together rather than  
voting to release based on the tag is not a good approach, but "you  
vote on binaries" has been established somewhere in the past for the  
incubator, I am pretty sure.
