Subject Re: [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC7
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2012 15:57:28 GMT
It is not about 7 RCs.  The 7th RC just got enough votes and we are going
to promote it to an actual release.

Close to 20 people voted +1 and we got 2 -1s.  As a release manager, I
think this is good enough for a release.

The issue is not blocker since there is an obvious workaround.  And there
are no security implications.

I would rather release now than wait for yet another arbitrary deadline
(4.8.1)

Thanks,
Om
