Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache VXQuery Incubating 0.2 (RC2)

Hi Jochen,

I'm sorry for the late reply - I was very busy in the last 2 weeks.

I agree that it would make sense to use the maven release plugin for our releases. And while
all the things that you do with the release plugin are probably easy to do, it wasn't obvious
to me how this should be done by looking at the docs of the release plugin. 
So I would to take you up on your offer to talk about this in a hangout.
When would be a good time to do that?
