Subject Re: VOTE : Axis 0.5 Release
Date Sun, 01 Jul 2001 04:00:13 GMT
I'm going to refrain from voting for the 0.5 release because I haven't 
been able to keep up with what has been done recently nor as to what the 
currently status of the code and docs is.  Take it as a passive +1 if you 
so desire.

Subject:        VOTE : Axis 0.5 Release




I believe we received a grand total of one +1 to the proposed release plan
thus far... (!)

I would like to raise this issue to an official vote, and get +1/-1s from
the committer base ASAP.  My current plan is to spend next week cleaning
things up, making small-scale improvements, and doc-writing.  According to
the release plan, we need at least 3 committers to +1 this and agree to be
the "release team".  The more of us that can put in some time next week, 
the
nicer we can make the release.

Votes?  Volunteers?
