Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Groovy 2.6.0-alpha-2
Date Mon, 13 Nov 2017 18:18:55 GMT
Current release includes a binary file (gradle/wrapper/*jar), which
isn't compatible with Apache release policy (ie source-only releases).
In all honestly, this isn't the first release with the same issue. I
was talking about it for too long and I am sorry I didn't address this
issue earlier.

Here's that has the
patch for the issue. I don't think we should block this release, but
let's make backport it into the next one, if there's no objections.

Incidentally, I can't assign the ticket to myself for whatever reason.
But the patch is there ;) Thanks!
  With regards,
Konstantin (Cos) Boudnik
