Subject Re: Stage a Maven Repository with Signed Artifacts to qualify a Release Vote
Date Fri, 24 Dec 2010 21:09:25 GMT
Hi Ralph,

Sorry if the list was wrong. But my intention was to understand the legal
requirements, should there be any. A practice can be followed, but something
that's legally required must be followed.

Yes, you are correct about the release plugin. But, normally a release is
done in a single-go once a vote has been approved; and you should not need
to host a temporary Maven repo to get a vote (for a release) passed (since
that repo will never be the final destination). My concerns are based on a
discussion at [1].
