No, but it gives me a clear signal what can be the origin of my problem.

It isn't a problem anymore, with Nexus on our side is just few steps
to prepare a release ;-)

Yep, that's the one of the reasons I have, another is that we fixed 41
bugs of total 50 assigned to 2.2.2 version. The most important are
done, the rest is related to JSONPlugin (not everyone uses) or
development improvement. Few users requested a new release, especially
that the most important bugs are done. So I can just postpone those
bugs and prepare a new release or start a new thread about changing
labeling. Hmmm.... preparing a new release will be faster ;-)

Besides it's more about promoting a release. I was asking about that
sometime ago. It would be great to promote Betas or RCs without
calling for a Vote.

I was looking for that discussion about labeling but didn't find,
could you help and point to the right direction ? Maybe it was on PMC
group ?


Kind regards
