Hi Doug, 

thanks a lot. 

Jira works fine, we will make a few issues now and continue with the other points next week.

A Hudson user would be best for me (grandyho) and Michael (fitzner). We will setup a build

using the current ant based build. After that we will probably need machine access for setting
up the C binding builds (ubuntu / windows). I suggest we first start with the general build
I will contact you again when we start with the C builds. Ok?

Whats missing is the Confluence Account. Should we contact infrastructure@.. or create an
in Jira? Or is it possible for any of you to change rights of our current limited confluence

We have seen an older mail regarding release 1.1. from April. I propose we start over to prepare
a release 
package in September and initiate a PMC vote regarding that when its ready. Will create Jiras
for that.
Proposal: remove the old release 1.1 branch, merge etch-c into trunk, fix bugs, create new
branch from trunk for 1.1

Holger & Michael

I can add a Hudson account for someone.  Who should I add?

Any mentor should be able to update svn rights.  Once the project 
graduates, its chair is given this ability.

Mailing-lists are administered by moderators.  Would you and Michael 
like to be moderators for Etch's lists?  You can submit a request to 
moderate through the INFRA Jira, an email to infrastructure@, or 
sometimes just by asking nicely on the #asfinfra IRC channel.
