Subject Re: Github tagging, was Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Joshua 6.1 RC#2
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2016 20:08:16 GMT
The subject is a bit odd, but isn't https://github.com/apache an official
Apache Software Foundation repository?

And https://github.com/apache/incubator-joshua/releases with the big blue
Releases button seems suggestive (or confusing) to downstream users.

The solution, due to GitHub's quirk, is to put tags after the vote. Doesn't
seem that much of a trouble.
