Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Nutch 1.1 Release Candidate #2
Date Tue, 27 Apr 2010 05:30:46 GMT
Ehrm, well OK, I technically started the 1.1 release VOTE (for rc #1) while in Lucene, so I
thought that even voting on an rc#2 within that same 1.1 release counted as "same thread",
but I suppose I'm just debating semantics.

In the end, it's probably simpler to be on the Nutch PMC anyways. We're in the process of
moving - we'll continue that and the move forward with 1.1 rc #2 in Nutch-ville.

there is potential for some odd voting formalities if a vote is actively
in progress when a TLP switch happens, but key the thing to remember is
that when a VOTE is called it's over a specific set of artifacts.  it
doesn't matter how long the discussion about having a relase has been
going on or how many release candidates were put up for a vote before,
what matters is that for this particular set of artifacts, the Nutch PMC
has the only binding votes, because the VOTE was called after the TLP was

I do have to ammend my earlier comments though, because i am now
remmebering that strictly speaking: the Lucene PMC can vote to release any
arbitrary hunk of ASL licensed code as a release -- there is no formal
rules abotu the "products" just the "prjects" ... so in theory we could
have a Lucene release of Nutch in the same way we could have a Lucene
release of Tomcat -- but that strikes me as being "uncool"

The fundemental point i'm trying to make is that the Nutch PMC does exist,
regardless of what domain names or mailing lists have or have not been
created, and all 7 Nutch Project Members have the power of binding votes
for artifacts the Nutch Project wants to release.
