Subject [RESULT] Re: [VOTE] Release Apache River 2.1.2
Date Sun, 28 Feb 2010 09:55:10 GMT
Well, the results for our vote for release of Apache River 2.1.2 are in:

+1 Tom Hobbs
+1 Jukka Zitting
+1 Niclas Hedhman

We have 2 Incubator PMC votes and 1 River PPMC vote.

We haven't quite achieved the numbers we needed to release Apache River 
on this occasion.  I think what we need is a large show of support from 
everybody that watches the Apache River Dev list.  There's an important 
patch that has been included in the River trunk since my release 
artifacts were posted. I've got a busy week ahead of me, so I can't 
provide new release Artifacts just yet.  But when I post the Release 
artifacts to vote again, lets make some noise!

In the mean time, if you know some people who have dropped out of view 
recently let them know we need their support.

Cheers,

Peter.
