Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Giraph 1.0 (rc0)
Date Sat, 13 Apr 2013 00:35:22 GMT
Thanks Roman for the comments.  I'll fix them and make a RC1 some time 
Regarding 3) and 4), I'd prefer to make a 1.1 release since we don't 
know exactly when 2.0.4 comes out.  After going through the process 
once, it's not too hard to do it again. =)
