Subject Re: [VOTE] Release RC4 as Apache Usergrid 1.0 (incubating) - CORRECTION
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2014 11:28:44 GMT
Jake,

Thanks for clarifying.  To echo the other sentiments already pointed out,
when I look at those you listed (Cassandra in particular), I notice that
they seem to vote for every single release, even if it's a repackage of an
existing RC.  This is from traversing a couple months worth of their
mailing list and seeing the trend.  I think if that's what you're trying to
emulate then Usergrid should follow that to a T.  As others have mentioned,
there are some additional errors in the packaging, which I've already tried
to bring to light on usergrid's mailing list.

- package contents seem to contain too much (remove node_modules and some
other folders from the distribution)
- Update NOTICE to include some of the missing dependencies

As I think I've seen brought up before as well, there are some less
important things to fix:

- When noting the tag, please link to your repo
- When noting the release artifacts, they need to be on distribution mirror
in dev.
- Make sure when you link to a IPMC vote thread, it matches the exact same
release #.

John
