Subject Re: [DISCUSS][ASFCS40] Status of getting to a 4.0.0 release?
Date Mon, 08 Oct 2012 19:31:40 GMT
Hi all,

So it appears that we are here:

* CLOUDSTACK-257 is resolved
* CLOUDSTACK-267 is committed to master and 4.0
* I committed a first draft CHANGES file to master (will move to 4.0
right before cutting a release, to provide time for suggestions /
* Encryption filing is prepared, but not sent (David is looking for
more comments from the community)

So I'll throw it out there again - how does everyone think we looking?
 Are there any outstanding issues / work / suggestions that we should
deal with before our first VOTE on 4.0.0?

IMO, we are ready to start the process.  I can assume silence means
that we are in a good place, and go through the process of cutting a
build / testing myself / starting a VOTE thread, but I'd love some
feedback either direction from others in the community.
