Subject [VOTE] Release commons-fileupload 1.2.1 (rc2)
Date Tue, 01 Jan 2008 20:06:31 GMT

I have prepared a second release candidate of commons-fileupload
1.2.1. A list of changes since rc1 and things that I haven't changes,
can be found below.

This should be as requested now. I'd like to point out, that I find
such a specific format more than inconenient. No program that I am
aware of, creates this format. It should be sufficient to have the
first word (the actual checksum) right.

Reduced to 6, which are basically insufficiencies of checkstyle.

Fixed the groupId to org.apache.commons.

The license in the POM file is now immediately after the "project" tag,

I haven't responded to the following suggestions, though:

These are all created with the standard Maven 2 with the settings as
specified in commons-parent pom, version 5. I have no intention to
change this per project.

My intention is to copy the rc2 tag to the final tag upon a positive
vote. I see no other way to create the distributables now without
moving svn tags.

Look, that's why there's rules, understand? So that you think before
you break 'em.
