Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Celix version 1.0.0.incubating
Date Sun, 16 Feb 2014 18:45:29 GMT
I agree with sebb and David that it's a good idea to remove links to SVN from the download
page and I propose that the Celix community changes this on their website.

At the same time I think this should be a separate discussion, as this thread is about voting
about the Celix release itself. Alexander has addressed some of the issues raised here, so
I would like to ask everybody to focus on that. The Celix community has been working hard
over the years to show that they get the Apache way, and you would really help them by reviewing
and voting on the release.

Greetings, Marcel
