Subject Re: [VOTE] Release jdo2 beta

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the feedback. That's one of the significant advantages of  
being in Apache for this project.

I'll take a look at distributing the sources for everything we're  
releasing here. No one on the project is really an expert on maven  
but I'm sure we can figure it out.
