Subject Geronimo 2.1.1 RELEASE-NOTE & README questions.
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2008 20:09:03 GMT

1) I've noticed that we actually have 2 RELEASE_NOTES-2.1.txt files in 
our source.  They are both identical.   One is in our root ... 
branches/2.1.1/RELEASE-NOTES-2.1.txt.  The other is 

  Are both of these necessary?  If not, which one is really required?

2) How elaborate do the release notes need to be for a maintenance 
release like 2.1.1?  For example, our 2.1 release notes included a list 
of enhancements explaining each.  I was just planning to list the JIRAs 
that were included in the release since most items are bug fixes and 
remove the 2.1 enhancement content.  Is that sufficient and what we have 
done in the past?

3) Why is the version number in the name?  I assume that I need to 
rename the current one to reflect that this is 2.1.1 ... but it might be 
better to just remove the version number completely when I rename it.

4) As with the RELEASE_NOTES we also have 2 instances of the README.txt 
file in our source.  One is in our root  ... branches/2.1.1/README.txt. 
  The other is 
  There is one minor difference between the 2 files.  Are both of these 
necessary and if not, which one is required?
