Subject Re: [VOTE] log4j 1.2.14 release
Date Thu, 14 Sep 2006 13:45:58 GMT
+1 to the release after some medium-strength testing (running it on a
dev server in an app that uses log4j for a couple of hours) and
looking at the distros.

I'm fine with this process, which has been used by other ASF projects
for a while.

I think logging-site should be tagged anyhow, not because of a build
dependency, but to allow us and our users to recreate the log4j site
as it existed for a particular version of log4j.  I personally have
found it useful in the past.  Tags are essentially free, let's not
skimp on them.
