I have absolutely no objection in principle to an Apache 0.20 release
including security.  I object to the fact that this patchset started
from an arbitrary point and unilaterally applied a large set of patches
that are not well correlated with Jira, trunk or other 0.20 branches.

This should be easily discoverable from Jira: issues should use the
"fix-for" field to indicate which branches they've been merged to.  This
standard practice has not been observed for over 400 patches included in
this release candidate.

These are not just technical concerns.  How I vote on any future release
candidate will in part depend on how the community is involved in its
production.

Thanks,
