Subject Re: Release 5.5.14 or retag 5.5.13
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2005 14:58:33 GMT
I'm hesitant to re-tag or re-release 5.5.13, but I have no problem
cutting a 5.5.14 as soon as tomorrow if you so desire.  But before I
do either, let me try to make sure I understand the issue.

The tomcat.nsi and/or build.xml files have a hard-coded version number
for the API we want, and this version number is now out of date?  What
are the consequences of using 5.5.13 with the APR connector right now?

If we cut tag/cut 5.5.14, do I need to do anything other than the
normal release procedures, or will you do the additional steps
(tagging the connectors, uploading binaries to HEAnet, updating
tomcat.nsi and build.xml)?

This is probably a dumb question, but I'll ask anyways.  Why isn't
this as simple as a user who downloaded 5.5.13 already going to
download the updated connectors/APR and plugging that in?  Why does it
have to be integrated into the release of Tomcat itself, especially
since it's an optional dependency?

Thanks in advance for explaining ;)
