Subject Re: [VOTE] Release apache-manifoldcf-0.4-incubating, RC2

Thanks for at least having a look at this!

Even if you find the main release to be too big to look at, the three
ManifoldCF plugins, which have separate release packages (and vote
threads) are quite small with extremely limited dependencies.  Maybe
those would be easier to digest? ;-)
