Assuming a simultaneous vote from both dev & PMC is allowed by our bylaws - I couldn't find anything preventing it.

Subject: [VOTE] log4j 1.2.14 release

I've prepared a release candidate for log4j 1.2.14.  To expedite the 
process, I've posted the call for a vote on both the log4j-dev and 
general@logging.apache.org and requesting that the log4j project and 
PMC votes take place simultaneously and all discussion occur on the 
log4j-dev mailing list.  All interested parties are invited to vote, 
though only log4j committer votes will be binding for the log4j 
project vote and PMC members on the PMC vote.   Voting will be open 
until September 18th at 00:00 GMT.  Any vote by a person who is both 
a PMC member and log4j committer will be assumed to apply to both 
votes unless requested otherwise.  A summery of the vote will be 
posted on both mailing lists.

The release candidate is currently available as either a tar.gz 
or .zip archive at:


The expected MD5 checksums for the files are:

MD5(logging-log4j-1.2.14rc1.tar.gz)= 7d8d02888b93e6f8d67b8e5f746196ae
MD5(logging-log4j-1.2.14rc1.zip)= 6c4f8da1fed407798ea0ad7984fe60db

If release of the vote passes, the archives will be renamed to remove 
the rc1 designation, digitally signed and moved to www.apache.org/
dist.  To allow voters to vote on the exact binary images to be 
released, the archives have no internal indication that they are not 
the final 1.2.14.  This is a break from previous practice where the 
final release was not identical to the release candidate.  If the 
release candidates are accepted, the MD5 checksums for the releases 
should be identical to those listed above.

The SVN tag corresponding to the release candidate is http://
svn.apache.org/repos/asf/logging/log4j/tags/v1_2_14.  The build 
process has been modified to eliminate the dependency on the logging-
site module, so there is no corresponding tag on that project.
