Subject Re: [DISCUSS] 2.2 release targets .... slip-sliding away
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2009 22:10:23 GMT
A release this month is looking doubtful given all the SNAPSHOT 
dependencies we have, but I'd suggest we keep trying for a release this 
month by reviewing the status each Thursday on dev@ and either continue 
working towards branching or send out the 24 hour branch notice if we're 
getting close.
