Subject Re: Why does nobody vote on the release? (was: Fwd: Re: [VOTE] Release Wave 0.4 based on RC4)
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2013 06:52:18 GMT
In which case, you can check nothing material has happened, and vote.
Unfortunately votes for a previous RC don't carry forwards to the next
one.

Note, that this voting process is going to be tedious. It is setting the
basis for future releases. Even if we completely rewrote the java code,
we would still have the bass for getting a release right, which will
make future releases vastly simpler.
