Subject Re: Release process: Question about [VOTE] threads
Date Sun, 21 Feb 2010 16:35:43 GMT

having so many votes on our first release. Although I/we have been
through many releases - in a variety of capacities - in our work
environments, I think we are still learning how a release works in
this arena.
