Subject [VOTE] Release Utils 1.4 and DS 1.8.0 (2nd try)
Date Wed, 30 Oct 2013 16:41:28 GMT
I'd like to propose that we release DS 1.8.0, which also requires a utile release.  This DS
release includes support for the Compendium 4.3 location binding and 5.0 targeted PID features,
and considerable refactoring and numerous bug fixes.

The Utils 1.4 artifacts are located in 

(these are the same artifacts as in the first, cancelled, release vote)

The DS 1.8.0 artifacts are located in


You can use this UNIX script to download the release and verify the signatures:

Usage: sh check_staged_release.sh 024 /tmp/felix-staging

Lets vote separately on the utile 1.4 and ds 1.8 releases so if ds has problems I don't have
to re-roll the utils release.

Please vote to approve the utils 1.4 release:
[ ] +1 Approve the release
[ ] -1 Veto the release (please provide specific comments)

Please vote to approve the DS 1.8.0 release:
[ ] +1 Approve the release
[ ] -1 Veto the release (please provide specific comments)

This vote will be open for 72 hours (at least).

Changes from 1.2.0 to 1.4.0

(the change log in the release misidentifies it as 1.3.  I've since fixed it but don't think
it's work redoing the release over).
