Subject Re: release manager for the next release
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2014 08:57:21 GMT
Thanks jürgen for the work you have done.

making a mac bot a priority seems to be easier said than done. We have had
a ticket open with infra for more than 2 years, and despite many pokes from
arist and myself, there are still no date when we can have one

We have the same problem with a number of our other platforms, and infra
does not seems very busy with other issues than to care about our

In other words, I strongly believe we have to depend on non-apache hardware
to produce a major part of the binaries. A new release manager should
provide or have access to several VMs in order to cut the release. It has
always looked as if Jürgen had direct or indirect access to all the
platforms needed.

A release manager does not need to be PMC, but only the PMC have binding
votes for a release......this can theoritically lead to a situation where
the vote ends with only +1, but the release manager gives a non-binding -1.
If nothing else that should lead to a funny board report.

just my thoughts.

Ps. it seems markmail does not support inline responses, or am I doing
something wrong ?
