Subject Re: [s2] 2.0.10 release - when?
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2007 18:11:58 GMT
Cool, I'm happy to do the JIRA, release notes and testing and defer the rolling
of the distribution to yourself or someone else.

I'll start working on this today. I'll get a 2.0.11 release setup in JIRA and
start moving unresolved tickets there. I'll also work on the notes and begin
testing the apps.
