Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Shale version 1.0.4
Date Thu, 04 Jan 2007 19:09:57 GMT
Thanks a lot for the detailed review of the distros, Niall !

I will comment on specific points below, but in light of Niall's
feedback I am proposing:

a) We close this vote, and declare it unsuccessful
b) We apply suggested fixes (again, specific comments below) and
recreate the svn tag
c) We vote again on new proposed artifacts with these fixes (and these
fixes only)

This means folks who have reviewed the artifacts will need to do so
again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Any objections to this plan?

OK, with that information, IMO, we should remove the cobertura plugin
completely for v1.0.4. We can discuss a suitable test coverage plugin
to add later, but as things stand, it seems to be mostly broken
[1],[2] in the current build anyway (we do have some tests for these
modules actually, contrary to what these report says).

I will fix this (assigned SHALE-384 to me already).

Craig is probably the best person here to answer this (though others
may know as well).

I maintained the inertia from previous releases regarding the
manifests, in hindsight, shouldn't have. Thanks again for all the
patches Niall.
