Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Hadoop version 1.2.0 released
Date Wed, 22 May 2013 20:12:31 GMT
It came to my attention yesterday (thanks, Arpit Gupta) that even though I
had gone through the process on Nexus to publish the release, the 1.2.0
artifacts were not in fact Released in Nexus.

I attempted to fix the issue yesterday afternoon, but it didn't work.  The
artifacts are still stuck in "Staging".  I will continue to work on it;
sorry for any inconvenience in the meantime.
