Subject summary issues with release candidate 0.9-rc1
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 11:36:02 GMT
A summary of the issues seen so far and my opinions.
Please say if you see it differently.

A) Tradmemark footer tweaks.
Okay. Leave until next release. 

B) Fix recent error with .htaccess file.
Okay. Only affects website. Leave until next release. 

C) Upgrade our packaged Jetty
Ditto with Apache Ant, etc.
Leave until next release.

D) Trouble with WAR file for our site-author docs.
Needs directory re-arrangement. We don't want
people providing our docs externally, and they
have a local version with 'forrest run'.
This was probably happening with our 0.8 release too.
Leave until next release.

E) Trouble with all WAR files using our provided skins,
and using the optional "Message of the day" motd facility.
This seems to be only on Java 1.5
There is a simple patch.
This was probably happening with our 0.8 release too.
Not sure about this one, but tempted to say leave until
the next release.

Still need to hear test reports from other people.
So will wait until [1].

There are a couple of issues that would be good to fix.
If we can do so, then an RC2 would be worthwhile.
