Subject Re: [VFS] Disallowed dependencies in build? (was Re: [VOTE] Apache Commons-VFS2 2.1 rc0)
Date Tue, 03 May 2016 20:14:08 GMT
Hello,

the sandbox works perfectly fine for me. Why do you think it is not
ready for release (beside we do not want to?)

I dont think we should burden such structural and long standing changes
onto a voluntary release manager given the 2.0 had the same structure.

Gruss
Bernd
