Subject [VOTE][RESULT] Use svnpubsub for publishing DB project release artifacts
Date Sat, 05 Apr 2014 17:34:37 GMT
After 10 days, eight in favor, and no votes against, this vote passes.
+1 votes were received from Craig, Greg, Michael, Thomas, Rick, Myrna, Camilla, and Dag.
Next steps:
The current Derby and Torque releases need to be copied to new svn directories under https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/db/
This can be done by anyone in the DB PMC. Infra will then establish the sync to the official
Apache release directory. 
Thanks, everyone.

Recently the JDO project set up to use svnpubsub to publish our releases. We have opened this
JIRA to track the request: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-7320 But because JDO
is a sub-project of db, infra would like to have "all or nothing" for svnpubsub. 

This technique is easier and less error-prone than the alternative (manually copying release
artifacts to dist/db via scp). The technique is described here: http://www.apache.org/dev/release#upload-ci

The impact on Derby is that as part of the migration, a Derby release manager (actually anyone
with commit privs to derby) will have to copy the release artifacts to the source svnpubsub
repository: https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/db/derby

Once this is done, infra will synchronize the release/db directory with Apache's official
release directory which is automatically mirrored worldwide. The downloads page that chooses
a mirror will continue to work exactly as before. There are no other changes to release artifact

To stop mirroring a Derby release, the appropriate directory under https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/db/derby
simply needs to be svn rm'd. The change will automatically propagate to mirrors.

Please vote to adopt this new release process.

Here's my +1

P.S. A good JDO? O, Gasp!
