Subject Re: Apache cTAKES 2.6-incubating?
Date Mon, 01 Oct 2012 23:11:23 GMT

the best thing is probably to carefully read the release

Can be found here:

Here are a few things I check when I look at a release:
- Source distribution should be in a state in which it can build the 
binary distribution
- Checksum files should be correct and match the distribution files 
(test it yourself)
- The LICENSE file needs to contain all licenses of included libraries and
   other third party work (e.g. icons)
- NOTICE file should include all attributions for third party work
- The distribution should contain a README file
- Version needs to contain the incubating flag
- Distribution needs to contain the incubator disclaimer
- Check all source files with RAT
- NOTICE and LICENSE files also need to be contained in jar files if you 
release them
   independently (e.g. in a maven repo)

Anyway I would not worry to much about getting everything right on
the first release candidate, you will (probably) end up doing a couple 
of them
anyway and as soon as we have the first I will help to check it.

of the branches....]
