Subject Re: freedom to do sane release management (was: Approve release Apache UIMA...)
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2007 14:24:57 GMT
I guess, from the Incubator release management guide, the requirement
is that the release can be built from a tag, in a later point in
time...

"All releases should be built from a tag. It is occasionally necessary
to rebuild releases many years later. Tagging is cheap and easy when
using subversion. So, every release and candidate should be tagged."
