Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Pivot 1.1 (second try)
Date Thu, 16 Apr 2009 13:16:34 GMT
What's the SVN tag for the release?

It's useful to be able to compare the source archive with SVN to check
if there are any missing or extraneous files.

It's also useful to compare the tar and zip versions of the archives -
it's not unknown for these to be different (ignoring differences in
source file line endings, which may be intentional). In this case they
are OK.

One minor problem I noticed: the LICENSE file contains some odd
characters towards the end which don't display well.
