Subject Re: Coho script
Date Sat, 14 Apr 2012 03:21:20 GMT
Even though I +1'ed above - I like the idea of each repo being
"buildable" without any other dependencies, even though it's a dupe. I
realize this is another step for maintainers adding the script in, but
hopefully adhering to a release checklist will help somewhat.

One (tiny) possible problem with the release script auto grabbing the
latest tagged js is, there is a possibility that it just might contain
new changes that hasn't been tested which the maintainer has not
signed off on (ie tested). But we might be able to mitigate this by
always releasing a rc build that gets tested again, before the
"official" release.
