Please vote on releasing this package as jackrabbit-core 1.4.9. The
vote is open for the next 72 hours and passes if a majority of at
least three +1 votes are cast. The vote is open for everyone but only
votes from Jackrabbit PMC members are binding.

    [ ] +1 Release this package as jackrabbit-core 1.4.9
    [ ] -1 Do not release this package because...

Here's my +1.

As before, I have also included a pre-compiled binary and a staged
Maven repository produced from the packaged source. If this vote
passes, I will make these artifacts available to users along with the
official source release.

PS. See RAT report at

PPS. I will be pretty much offline for the next 72 hours, so I won't
be able to address any issues that may come up during voting. I will
extend the vote period for a few days if anything major comes up while
I'm gone.
