Subject Re: [VOTE] Release JDO2.3 "early access"
Date Mon, 11 May 2009 17:18:42 GMT
One final comment. The release process requires that the vote message  
be forwarded to the DB PMC:
The release manager calls for a vote to release by sending a message  
to the community and forwarding the message to the pmc.
<LI>Send an announcement to vote on the release to the jdo-dev@db.apache.org 
  alias. The message subject line contains [VOTE]. Forward the [VOTE]  
message to private@db.apache.org. Iterate until you get a successful  
vote. Mail the results of the vote to jdo-dev@db.apache.org, cc: general@db.apache.org 
, and include [VOTE] [RESULTS] in the subject line.</LI>
This is required because it's actually the DB PMC that votes to  
release. The JDO project has four members on the DB PMC, but it's  
still the DB PMC that votes.

 From the http://db.apache.org/management.html page,

The call for a vote on issues not detailed here may specify  
requirements for passage. The minimum and default requirement for a  
passing vote is simple majority of PMC members casting ballots. The  
default voting period is 10 days and the minimum is 7 days unless the  
success or failure is arithmetically known.

So if you notify the PMC today, we can release next Monday.
