Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache httpd 2.4.28 as GA
Date Thu, 28 Sep 2017 13:51:50 GMT
If the issue is "real" and a patch is forthcoming, I agree that we
mark 2.4.28 as DOA and proceed w/ 2.4.29 next week. I am comfortable keeping
the VOTE open longer that the normal/required 72hours to be sure one way
or another.

Personally, I don't think the age or heritage of the build-logic is the issue,
but rather a lack of people *really* testing 2.4.x until a release is tagged.
It's for that reason that I tend to pre-announce a T&R well in advance of actually
DOING the T&R so that people can test HEAD in hopes that the tag will already
have had some good testing beforehand.

includes list so this can't happen again during 2.4, and hopefully not until 20 year old build
logic is discarded. One less thing to worry about or pre-review when RM's loudly announce
an upcoming tag.
