Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache NetBeans 9.0 RC1 (incubating) rc1
Date Sat, 26 May 2018 09:28:58 GMT
+1 (non binding)

Signatures verified after importing the 1CCF4647 key from here:

https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans/KEYS

SHA1 digests match.

DISCLAIMER and NOTICE look good.

nbbuild/rat-exclusions.txt, we need to work on making it smaller, but we
have documented everything as clearly as we can.

Build with "ant" passes
Build with "ant tryme" starts the IDE.
Build with "ant rat" passes.

There are licensing issues left to be resolved, as described above by
others.

We have created issues and documented everything that needs to be done for
the final release:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Apache+NetBeans+9.0+RC1

We've worked hard on this, have shown continuing commitment to the Apache
Way, and are doing everything and following everything as quickly and
correctly as possible.

We're nice people. :-)
