Subject Re: [VOTE] Release JSPWiki version 2.9.1-incubating
Date Tue, 16 Apr 2013 21:24:12 GMT
Hi Sebb,

first of all, thanks for your time reviewing the RC and your comments

seems we'll have to cancel the vote. Hopefully, we'll have a new RC in a
few days with all these issues fixed.

Some notes, though:

- I'm especially worried about the NOTICE file, how short is short enough?
Could you provide a good example from any other project so we can take a
look at it? To take a grasp of how we should do it. We'd like to have it as
good as the LICENSE file (also, the incorrect year in NOTICE was also
pointed by Siegfried, but not as a blocker, so it's fixed in trunk).

- The signature files is big mistake on my side. Don't know how or what did
I did when doing the scp of the binaries. It's.. awkward.

- IDE specific files: right now our build tool is Ant so, in order to ease
the initial hop in, we provide Eclipse specific files with the project
configuration. We're working on moving to Maven, which will allow us to
delete those files from svn.


thanks & best regards,
juan pablo
