Subject [VOTE] re-release version 0.9
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2012 05:00:15 GMT
As explained in the Proposal [1] an issue was discovered with our
release of Apache Forrest 0.9, in that our vote was conducted on
a package that contained more than just our sources.

I have used the voted package from our 0.9 release, verified it,
and split it into two separate packages for "sources" and "dependencies".

So please download the new release candidate and supporting files:                       

Get apache-forrest-0.9-sources.tar.gz (md5sum 2bc9e0b220f8ec5bc1f228dbc3023e0e)
Get the *.asc and *.md5 files and follow verification notes at

Unpack those source and ensure that you are satisifed.

To test, download the dependencies apache-forrest-0.9-dependencies.tar.gz
and follow the verification notes.
Now unpack this directly over the top of the sources.
Java 1.5 or later is required.                                                           
Testing and vote period concludes after 7 days on
Wednesday 2012-04-18 at 22:00 UTC [2].                              
Anyone can test and vote, not just PMC members.                                          
However only the Forrest PMC votes are binding [3].                                      
When voting, quote the md5 to ensure that we are all                                     
using the correct final release candidate sources package.
The votes need to happen against the final source release package.

After a successful vote, i will put the files back on the distribution mirrors
and adjust our download page to link to the new files and explain how to use it.

"A lazy majority vote requires 3 binding +1 votes                                        
and more binding +1 votes than -1 votes".
