Subject Re: [VOTE] Convert RC2 to Beta 5
Date Sun, 08 Jun 2003 23:12:51 GMT
(Thanks Ted and others comitters CVSing fixes (David, Martin) for 
donating yet another weekend to Struts, either way).
My comprehension (not again.... Its not flamey this time) is this:

Ted can release today under Beta 5 beta as is (with the known failed 
test) with all the work he did. Plus for this side is... who knows when 
is the next time a release will come, and no release for Java One?, that 
was the motivation here. So it's a step sideways to go forward. +1 means 
release Today, that is how I read it. It's just a name.

Else... someone else (who has tech. skills/experience of Ted) has to 
step forward, at another time to fix and build and release.   So if you 
look at it as beta  vs RC 2... it seems RC2! But when, a week? A month? 
What about the work done last few days? So a - 1 means.... wait.

If you say, hey, lets release something! that works and passes most 
tests in how it's used, and lets move towards final then ... beta 5.

+0 for B5.
