Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Configuration 2.1 based on RC3
Date Sat, 13 Aug 2016 20:05:00 GMT
Either ’a’ or ‘b’.

I’m all for anything that makes releasing easier.

+1 for requiring java 1.7 or 1.8 to build site
+1 (in general) for requiring java 1.7 or 1.8 to build artifacts, even if project is targeted
to 1.6, 1.5, etc.
