Mea culpa! I didn't copy the user list when I sent out this vote notice.

Please checkout our Geronimo 2.1 release candidate and let us know what you think.

All,
I've prepared a 2.1 release candidate for your review and vote. I've also prepared a 2.1.1 TxManager release candidate for review and vote. For simplicity, I'm holding a single vote for both releases. The Geronimo server release is dependent upon the TxManager 2.1.1 release. 

The source for the Geronimo 2.1 release currently resides here: 
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/server/branches/2.1.0

When the release vote is approved, I will svn mv the code to 
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/server/tags/2.1.0

An archive of this source code can be found here:  
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist/geronimo-2.1-src.tar.gz
 
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist/ contains the 8 Java EE and Minimal server binary distributions to be released (tomcat/jetty, Java EE/Minimal, tar/zip) as well as the RELEASE_NOTES and source code archives for the release. 

For your convenience, here are pointers to the urls for the distributions in zip format:
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist/geronimo-jetty6-javaee5-2.1-bin.zip
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist/geronimo-jetty6-minimal-2.1-bin.zip
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.1-bin.zip
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist/geronimo-tomcat6-minimal-2.1-bin.zip

The maven artifacts for the release can be found here: 
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1/

or in the following archive (warning, this file is 458 megs):
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-2.1-dist.tar.gz

When the release vote is approved, these maven artifacts will be moved to the m2-ibiblio-rsync-repository at Apache.

Due to the discovery of a bug in the Connector component of Geronimo TxManager, a new release of TxManager was needed. TxManager 2.1.1 is also part of this vote.

The source code for the TxManager 2.1.1 release can be found here: 
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/geronimo/components/txmanager/tags/geronimo-txmanager-parent-2.1.1

The maven artifacts for TxManager 2.1.1 can be found here:
http://people.apache.org/~kevan/release-votes/G-2.1/geronimo-txmanager-2.1.1/

When the release vote is approved, these maven artifacts will be moved to the m2-ibiblio-rsync-repository at Apache.
 
Please review these releases and register your vote.

[ ] +1 Release Geronimo 2.1 and TxManager 2.1.1
[ ] 0 No opinion
[ ] -1 Do not release Geronimo 2.1 and TxManager 2.1.1 (please provide rationale)

I'll plan on calling this vote on Wednesday evening (11 PM EST).
