== Release Manager ==

The release manager is '''Ted Husted'''

== Special Issues ==

Struts Classic 1.3.0 is a "bootstrap" distribution of the new Struts subprojects extracted
from Struts 1.2.7.

Struts Classic 1.3.1 incorporates updated versions of the six subprojects. At this point,
the subproject release numbers may start to diverge, and not every subproject will be at the
1.3.0 level. 

It is important to recognize that Struts Classic is a *distribution* of subproject releases,

== How to Help ==

Everyone in the Struts community, users, developers, and committers, are encouraged to test
a release, report any issues, and post to dev@ any comments on the overall quality of the
release.

To help everyone get started with Struts Classic 1.3.1 (when it is available), here are the
simplest installation instructions that can possibly work:

 * Download the Struts 1.3.1 distribution from http://svn.apache.org/dist/struts/classic/v1.3.1/
(when it is available)
 * Extract subproject distribution to a likely location (\opt\struts-*)
 * Install Java and set JAVA_HOME 
 * Install Maven and set MAVEN_HOME
 * Install the Cactus Plugins and Apache Tomcat 
 * * http://wiki.apache.org/struts/StrutsMaintenanceMaven
 * Change to the Struts Build folder (e.g., \opt\struts-build)
 * $ maven
 * Wait about five minutes for Maven to download and build everything
 ** If you see any error messages, see if they are known issues by comparing your log with
ours at http://svn.apache.org/builds/struts/maven/trunk/nightly/logs/
