From Stian Soiland-Reyes <st...@apache.org>
Subject [CANCELLED] [VOTE] Release Apache Taverna Language 0.16.0-incubating RC1
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2018 13:13:21 GMT
Thanks to all who voted.

This release-candidate is Cancelled, the Taverna podling will work to
address the licensing issues pointed out by Dave Fisher. 

Although our use of Creative Commons should be allowed by Legal's
resolved FAQ, we recognize that IPMC feelings are otherwise, so we'll
have to recode to avoid including these schema files.


Tally:

+1 Stian Soiland-Reyes (binding)
+1 Andy Seaborne (binding)
-1 David Fisher (binding)
