Subject Re: [vote] Submit a motion to the ASF board to exempt Apache::* from the official release process
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2011 03:32:22 GMT
I'll +1 this, but i'm worried about the message it's going to send.  I 
haven't been on top of actually testing and +1'ing releases lately, but 
i also feel like i could be, if i got a poke about actually getting it done.
