Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Shared 1.0.0-M1 and JUnit Add-ons 0.1
Date Mon, 14 Feb 2011 14:20:26 GMT
[X] +1 Release Shared 1.0.0-M1 and JUnit Add-ons 0.1


I checked the source and binary distribution packages.
The sources package looks good and built successfully via Maven.
I was able to connect to ApacheDS via the libraries included in the binary distribution package
and small hand-written class (written in less than a minute :) ).

Now, a few points that need discussion and can probably be improved in the next milestone
release:
- I'm not sure the NOTICE file is completely OK and probably needs to contain a small text
entry for each third party library.
- It may be interesting to use the Felix Bundle Maven plugin to make the 'shared-all' a real
OSGI-ready bundle (It's a simple jar ATM).
- It would be also interesting to bundle with the distribution the log4j dependency, just
like we do for ApacheDS. I had to download this aside and add it to the build path to be able
to work with the LDAP API.
I understand that we're using a logging "façade" (SLF4J) to allow the user to choose the
implementation he prefers, but I think most users of the API won't know and don't care about
it. 
If we bundle log4j in the final distribution, the LDAP API can be used in one simple step
and people willing to use their logger implementation of choice can easily remove the bundle
log4j and add their own jar.

Beside these three small remarks, the release looks really good.

Congrats and thanks for handling this, Stefan!
