Subject [VOTE] Release FOP Trunk as FOP 0.90alpha1
Date Tue, 15 Nov 2005 20:14:12 GMT
This is it. Just to make it clear again: This is a a release vote and
therefore a PMC vote, but every FOP committer is invited to place his
vote or raise any objections. Noone gets ignored. Although fop-dev is in
the CC, please place your votes on general@xmlgraphics.apache.org.

Even though I haven't fully finished all of the documentation, yet, I'd
like to start the vote. I'll have everthing finished by tomorrow evening
(CET). I don't intend to do any more code changes, only the last
documentation updates.
http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/ReleasePlanFirstPR shows the
release plan and the status of the proceedings.

I know of no legal problems needing attention. The external dependencies
are well documented and every JAR in the lib directory is accompanied by
its license. Hyphenation files have been removed. The unknown origin of
some long-existing example FO files is not a problem IMO.

0.90alpha1 will carry a big warning sign in the README file that the
software is a preview release and should not be used in production
unless thoroughly tested for the target environment. It is intended to
let everybody know that FOP is back in business and to produce feedback
on our new piece of software from users that don't (or can't) download
the code from SVN.

I'd like to propose to release FOP SVN Trunk as version 0.90alpha1.

+1 from me, obviously.
