Unlike previous Jackrabbit releases and as discussed before, this
patch release contains only a single component. The jackrabbit-core
component to be released is included both as a source archive and a
pre-compiled binary. A staged org/apache/jackrabbit Maven repository
with the new component is also included for review.

Please vote on releasing these packages as jackrabbit-core 1.4.1. The
vote is on for the next 72 hours and passes if a majority of at least
three +1 votes are cast.
