Subject Re: [VOTE RESULT] publish openjpa 0.9.6-incubating podling release
Date Sun, 12 Nov 2006 22:06:40 GMT
Hi Marc,

Please read this regarding votes. http://www.apache.org/foundation/ 
voting.html#ReleaseVotes

<policy>
Votes on whether a package is ready to be released follow a format  
similar to majority approval -- except that the decision is  
officially determined solely by whether at least three +1 votes were  
registered. Releases may not be vetoed. Generally the community will  
table the vote to release if anyone identifies serious problems, but  
in most cases the ultimate decision, once three or more positive  
votes have been garnered, lies with the individual serving as release  
manager. The specifics of the process may vary from project to  
project, but the 'minimum of three +1 votes' rule is universal.
</policy>

Things are slightly different in the incubator, where a big part of  
incubation is protecting Apache from legal issues as a result of  
releasing tainted code. See http://incubator.apache.org/guides/ 
releasemanagement.html. But much of the incubator release policy is  
still TODO [sic].

The release manager (in this case, Marc) has large discretion on  
releases. While vetoing a release is not technically possible, the  
release manager will take constructive comments seriously, especially  
from mentors, and respin a release as many times as necessary to get  
consensus.
