Subject Re: [vote] Submit a motion to the ASF board to exempt Apache::* from the official release process
Date Tue, 26 Jul 2011 04:29:06 GMT
I'm hoping the message it will send is that the sub-releases of
Apache::* were successful enough that they have outgrown the core
mod_perl project.  Our problem has not become a lack of votes, it has
become a large increase in the number of needed votes.
