Subject [VOTE] Release JMeter 5.2 RC4
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2019 10:50:40 GMT
The fourth release candidate for JMeter 5.2 (26ef2cef53) has been
prepared, and your votes are solicited.

* This release brings two major changes for the distributed 
version-control system and the building tool:
    - migration from Subversion (svn) to Git repository (compliant with 
GitHub and ASF GitBox)
    - migration from Apache Ant to Gradle build system

This for 2 main objectives:
    * Improve the ease for contributors to make improvements and 
corrections of bugs
    * Allow to have new and more frequent versions of JMeter by 
automating release steps.

Special Thanks for Vladimir Sitnikov (vladimirsitnikov@a.o) for these 
works and supports.

Please, test this release candidate (with load tests and/or functional
tests) using Java 8+ on Linux/Windows/macOS, especially on the changes.
Feedback is very welcome within the next 72 hours.

@PMC and Commiters ==> This is the first release with the new 
process/tool with Gradle and Git repository, so please double check this 
release to find all issue in theses changes in the building and 
releasing mechanisms for JMeter. <==
