Subject [VOTE] Release Apache Pivot 1.1 (second try)
Date Tue, 14 Apr 2009 19:49:28 GMT
Incubator PMC members:

I've addressed the concerns brought up in the first vote and have
re-rolled the distribution archives with the fixes.  Specifically,
here's what changed since the last vote:

* Changed the JDK 1.5 system requirement in the BUILD file to be JDK
1.6 (which includes the StAX API and JavaScript engine).  This enabled
us to remove the stax*.jar and js*.jar files from the distribution and
sidestep any potential issues with including them in the future.  Note
that the runtime system requirement is still JRE 1.5 -- this stricter
1.6 system requirement only applies to those who want to build Pivot
from source.

* Removed the LiveConnect "plugin.jar" from being included in the
distribution, and added a note about the need for the library in the
BUILD file.  Also added a check in the build file to fail
descriptively if the developer does not have the LiveConnect library
on their classpath.

* Removed JUnit from being included in the distribution, and listed it
a system requirement in the BUILD file.  Also added a check in the
build file to fail descriptively if the developer does not have JUnit
on their classpath.

* Added the Creative Commons Attribution 2.5 License to the LICENSE
file.  Note that since we removed JUnit from the distribution, we no
longer need to add the Common Public License to the LICENSE file.

* Updated the servlet-api.jar to the one that ships with Tomcat 6.0,
and updated the NOTICE file to explicitly state that the file comes
from Apache Tomcat and is licensed under the Apache License 2.0.

I have re-posted the new distribution archives and the newly generated
RAT reports to the following location:
http://people.apache.org/~tvolkert/pivot/

I have also checked the archives by running the following tests:
* Unpacked all archives (zip and tar.gz, source and binaries) into
distinct folders.
* Verified the md5 and sha1 checksums of all archives
* Verified the pgp signatures of all archives
* Inspected the Javadoc included in the binary release
* Built and ran a suite of proprietary Pivot apps against the binary
JAR files from the command line (DesktopApplicationContext)
* Built the "build", "doc", "dist", and "install" targets from within
the source distribution and verified that the output was correct (by
inspection).
* Looked at the .txt RAT report to make sure that the remaining files
without a license header were acceptable.
* Made sure that my most recent changes are in the new artifacts.

With these changes, I'd like to call for another vote.  Please vote by
6 PM UTC Friday, 4/17.
