Subject Re: Release 3.0
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2015 10:56:10 GMT
Excellent.  I am glad to see this moving forward.

Copying Brad, who heads our CI integration efforts.  We have a large
refactor coming back to master on our code base, once that is stable we can
look at a refactor to the new river release package names and provide
feedback based on that.

Please do keep people informed about movement towards a release artifact
