Subject Snapshots
Date Mon, 16 Jan 2006 13:41:17 GMT
I created the place to put our 'snapshots'.  I'm calling them snapshots 
rather than releases because that seems more appropriate.

So the guidelines:


1) Place a README.txt in the root of each snapshot that says :

This is a snapshot distribution of the Apache Harmony project.
Apache Harmony is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software 
Foundation (ASF). Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects 
until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, 
communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner 
consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status 
is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the 
code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by 
the ASF.

2) Have instructions for generating the snapshot.  It would be best if 
it was an ant or maven script so there's no manual phases.

3) Copy the completed snapshot in tar and zip form, with md5 sum for 
each, to minotaur.apache.org.  Then copy to


4) Post a note to the dev list when this has been completed so we have 
some institutional memory of this happening.


Comments appreciated.

I'll add this to our website today - I wanted to create a documentation 
area, so this will be a good start.

I'll also notify the incubator PMC that we are doing this.
