Subject Re: Ease of release process and exit criteria
Date Fri, 19 Aug 2016 20:55:55 GMT
As a data point, for Apache Geode we have a detailed release page:
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/GEODE/Release+Steps

We’ve been rotating RM’s for each release and the notes get enhanced each time through
the process.

Feedback welcome!

Thanks,
Anthony
