*Note:* the RC1, RC2 and RC3 were not submit for vote due an issue in 
release process when the maven artefacts are upload to nexus. For this 
RC7, the automatic maven upload inside build.xml was replaced by a 
semi-automatic upload with the maven-gpg-plugin.

*Note2:* the RC5 were not submit for vote due an little commit by 
Philippe :-) during the release process.
