+1 for release.

Please check the following details. Though I could not find a real 
problem, I'm not totally sure, that there is no problematic observation. 
It is the first JMeter release I checked a bit more thoroughly. Thanks 
for RM!


- MD5 OK
- signatures OK
- key in KEYS file
- AFAIK the key is not in the web of trust. It would be good
   if we found a way to sign your key.
- gz and zip for src and bin consistent
- src consistent with svn tag, except for the following points:

Only in gz/bin/testfiles: Sample_Chart.png
Only in gz/bin/testfiles: Sample_Line_Graph.png
Only in svn: doap_JMeter.rdf
Only in svn: docs
Only in svn/lib: api
Only in svn/lib: doc
Only in svn/lib: ext
Only in svn/lib: junit
Only in svn: rat-excludes.txt
Only in svn: STATUS

- extras/ in bin distributable not executable
- *.sh files in svn and src distribution not executable
- bin/jmeter and bin/jmeter-.server files in src distribution not 
executable (but they are in svn)
- xdocs/download_jmeter.cgi file in src distribution not executable (but 
it is in svn)

- builds fine

But: I had to set -Ddisable-check-versions=true to build from the src 
tgz. Setting -Ddisable-svnCheck=true was not sufficient, it demanded for 
svn.revision and setting that seemed to change the version numbers.

- build result looks consistent with distribution, except for
   - timestamps in generated javadoc
   - binary jar files
   - Yen sign in line 3348 of file printable_docs/usermanual/functions.html

- one Javadoc warning:

src/jorphan/org/apache/jorphan/test/ warning - 
Tag @see: reference not found: org.apache.jorphan.test.AllTests

- ran the tests (but only with java.awt.headless)

- I have not checked the staging repository.

Build and tests were done using Java 1.5.0_22, OS was Solaris 10 Sparc,
