Subject Incubator releases in central maven repo, was: [VOTE][policy] Release Distribution Directory
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2007 17:16:01 GMT
Robert,

this is great, thanks.  I don't want to muddy the
waters, but is it time to bring up the maven repo
question again as well?  If incubator releases *are*
official releases, is there a reason not to upload
maven artifacts to the central repository?
