Subject RE: Where's 4.1.31?

Hi Yoav, thanks for the release documentation.  Do you mind if I
check this in to jt-4.0?  I think it would be very helpful.

I am aware that 5.0 uses "significantly different code" which is
in itself a good reason for continuing maintenance releases of 4.1.

Backporting patches would be a nice side-improvement if it were
done, but I think there have been enough fixes to 4.1 itself
to warrant a new release without said backports.

>From a procedural standpoint, it is my understanding that the 
only vote needed is one to label a rc (ie beta or stable).  
Is that correct?

If so, I'd like to be the 4.1.31 RM and I will go to work on 
syncing the release notes and get an rc out this weekend.

Keith

Hi,
The process is already somewhat documented.  For example,
http://cvs.apache.org/~yoavs/tomcatReleaseManager.html is my personal
notes, and http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/releases/ is mostly
Jakarta-general, not specific to Commons.  It deviates from the process
you posted in that we usually label a release alpha or beta, leave it
out in the "wild" for a bit to give users a chance to use it, and then
call it stable (with a new announcement).
