Subject Re: [VOTE] Release OpenJPA-2.0.0-beta Plugin for Geronimo 2.1.3 - 2.1.5 servers - RC2
Date Tue, 09 Feb 2010 20:29:48 GMT
Hi Donald,
I don't see a source archive that covers this release vote. This is almost certainly a bit
of a change from some of our past votes. However, IMO, we should have source archives (tar.gz/zip)
that are signed, checksum'ed. These archives are what we are voting on. Ideally the archives
should be called out in the vote. They probably should end up in our dist directory, also.
Perhaps something to discuss...

For instance, for the jcdi spec, IMO the tar.gz and zip source archives (e.g.
represent what we are "releasing". This is what I'm voting on (I happen to also ensure that
the contents match the contents of our svn tag). However, that's not a strict requirement.

Also, I'm not able to build. I'm getting a build failure with a missing dependency:

1) org.apache.geronimo.modules:geronimo-openjpa2:jar:2.1.3

So, I'm -1, at the moment (until the source archive and build issue are resolved). I haven't
validated signatures/checksums, but everything else looks good.
