Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Regexp 1.5
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2007 10:34:59 GMT
Hm,

I hate to spoil you here but according to a recent board discussion,
some discussion on private@velocity and a completely botched release
attempt in Velocity land:

You actually have to roll and sign a tarball/zip ball on which the vote
happens. "Release-then-Vote" seems to be the only accepted way by the
board these days; personally I do prefer "Vote-then-Release" myself but
that seems to be the way it is. 

On the release itself I'm +1, on the procedure I prefer to abstain. :-)

	Best regards
		Henning
