Subject Re: [RESULT] [VOTE] Release Apache Groovy 2.4.4-incubating
Date Fri, 17 Jul 2015 17:06:21 GMT
I'm particularly interested in the build / release aspect here. What were
the Cordova struggles.
For the L&N, that's indeed a human task that has to be done once (plus some
Rat & automated checks)
What I'd like is to be able to automate the release as much as possible,
with the least error prone human interaction.
