Subject Re: [VOTE] Tomcat 4.1.18 release
Date Fri, 20 Dec 2002 02:06:21 GMT
Remy,

I checked the cvs and found there are some number of changes in the 
writer and response in coyote starting from 4.1.12.  (See the diff from 
4.1.12).  Many of the changes are started at around 4.1.15/16.

I think there is the problem in the roll out procedures, especially when 
a release is voted by the committer as stable and before the release 
manager declare it as GA.  Stability test and code review should be 
thoroughly run.

May be in 5.0, we could do better on this.

- Punky

P.S. I remember there was discussion in the release procedure or 
numbering guides.  But I cannot find one in tomcat site.  Is it just 
from http project? (http://httpd.apache.org/dev/release.html)
