Subject Re: Press Release for Geronimo 2.0.1
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2007 13:25:34 GMT
We will review this and provide any feedback to you. Once approved
by both you guys and the PRC, we will submit it for the wire.
It is not an instantaneous process taking 24-48 hours, and
so doing that in conjunction with when you want the PR
released is some scheduling fun :) For example, you don't
want it to be released at the end of the week.
