Subject Re: [VOTE] Release jdo2 beta
Date Sun, 15 Jan 2006 01:32:50 GMT
Hi Dan,

Thanks for the advice. This is my first release.

What we are trying to release is several jar files from the jdo2  
project plus a source download. I'll stage these on my apache.org/ 
~clr site along with instructions on what to do with them.

Since the tck is a requirement for claiming compatibility with JSR  
243, we need to distribute its sources. But the rest of the  
dependencies are distributed as binaries accessible via maven.

So what would you like to see here? We've started the release  
process, and need a vote to make the components available on the  
Apache web site. Clearly I can make the binaries available as a maven  
repository in my ~clr web site but the other part is the process of  
getting people comfortable with the release process itself.
