Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache CouchDB 3.0.0 (-rc1)
Date Thu, 13 Feb 2020 16:56:05 GMT
With this vote, we are now at 3 +1 PMC votes - a minimum for releasing.

Everyone - please keep testing and submitting your experience. It'd be 
nice if someone could double check the GPG signing and checksums as 
well. If we need to stop the release, we will.

Our typical policy is to release on Tuesdays for widest publicity. As 
Monday is a public holiday in Canada, I suggest we push things out one 
day. That'd put us on the following schedule, since we must wait 24 
hours for the Apache mirrors to catch up:

Tue Feb 18 - Push apache-couchdb-3.0.0.tar.gz* to
            - Push Mac/Win binaries wherever they are going
            - Push binary packages to
            - Test and merge 3.0.0 Docker PR
            - Push new Docker image to apache/couchdb

Wed Feb 19 - Update website
            - Announce widely (twitter, blog, announce@a.o, etc.)
            - Open downstream Docker PR for top-level couchdb image

Any objections?
