Subject Re: OpenNLP 1.6.0 RC 4 ready for testing

Btw. usually, there is little to no difference between the latest SNAPSHOT version,
e.g. 1.6.0-SNAPSHOT in this case, and the RC. You could switch your CI to use the 
SNAPSHOT versions from the Apache repos. Please mind that these SNAPSHOTS are *not*
releases, did not generally undergo the process necessary for a release, and are 
not meant for general consumption.
