Ok, added zip file generation to the source assembly.

That wasn't the case for the previous fileupload releases. Why change it?

See, for example,

You are right, of course, that an entry must be added to the KEYS file.

What's the deal?

Couldn't we do that *after* the release, please? I would clearly
prefer *not* to introduce any incompatible changes in that stage.

I never intended to publish the exact distributables that we voted on.
For example, I never intented to change version numbers within the
binary distributables from 1.2rc2 to 1.2. How do others do that?

Afar from that, I never intended to use the release manager. To be
honest, I never got it working. I was thinking along the lines of

    mvn -Drelease clean install site assembly:assembly deploy

Which is (apart from the "deploy") exactly what I did to build the
current files.

If you insist, I can omit the "deploy" and do the deployment manually.
(In other words, omit rebuilding the files.) That said, I spent a lot
of time in an automatic build exactly for *not* requiring any manual
interventions, because I trust my build system more than myself.

Yes, but my clear intention was *not* to wait for a release of
commons-parent again (I already did so last year for several months),
rather than learning from this release and then move the stuff up
later. (Note, that I did all changes in a branch, to allow me for
careful integration into either trunk or commons-parent later.)


How fast can a year go? As fast as your childs first year.
