Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Daffodil (incubating) 2.3.0-rc1
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2019 23:45:38 GMT
Hi all,

I have started verifying this release ... however this is the first time I am validating a
project I'm not directly involved in. 
So I found some things that are different than with the other projects (Not sure if this is
bad or good though)

So here goes:
1) No KEYS file (Think this has been reported)
2) No README and RELEASE_NOTES in the RC directory
3) There are sha256 and 512 files ... is it OK to have the sha256 ones? I remember us having
to remove less "save" signature files
4) Is there a reason, why the "RPM" file is "2.3.0.incubating" instead of "2.3.0-incubating"
(dot instead of a dash).
5) It was impossible to import the GPG Key from or any of my known key servers
(did it manually)
6) The PGP key used to sign doesn't have a valid trust chain (but the signatures check out
and refer to an apache email address)

Formal download, hash and signature checks: All OK (see GPG remark)
- I was able to download all artifacts
- All 256sha hashes are valid
- All 512sha hashes are valid
- The signatures in the ASC files check-out (no trust chain though)

Now to the source-bundle checks:
- Was able to unpack the zip
- Zip name contained "incubating"
- Archive contains: DISCLAIMER, LICENSE, NOTICE, README(.md)
- There is no RELEASE_NOTES (Think this is required)
- Content of the
	- I it states the user list to be:, however I'm subscribed to
	- I think the ASF HipChat was replaced with Slack (Don't know if it's still active)

- Mac 10.14.3, SBT 1.2.8, Java Oracle 1.8.0_141-b15: 
	- sbt compile (success)
	- sbt test (got out of memory errors, did a 'export SBT_OPTS="-XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled
-XX:MaxPermSize=2G -Xmx2G"' first to make it run) 
		[error] Failed: Total 3311, Failed 35, Errors 0, Passed 3276
	- sbt it:test (all tests passed)

- Windows 10, SBT 1.2.7, Java Oracle 1.8.0_101:
	- sbt compile (success)
	- sbt test (got out of memory errors, did a 'export SBT_OPTS="-XX:+CMSClassUnloadingEnabled
-XX:MaxPermSize=2G -Xmx2G"' first to make it run)
		[error] Failed: Total 3311, Failed 35, Errors 0, Passed 3276
	- sbt it:test 
		Failed: 4

... I'll continue testing on Sunday evening ...

So far I'll vote with a

+0 (binding) as I don't quite know how bad the things I found are.

    Hi all,
    The Apache Daffodil community has voted and approved the proposed
    release of Apache Daffodil (incubating) 2.3.0-rc1.
    We now kindly request the Incubator PMC members review and vote on this
    incubator release.
    Daffodil is an open source implementation of the DFDL specification that
    uses DFDL schemas to parse fixed format data into an infoset, which is
    most commonly represented as either XML or JSON. This allows the use of
    well-established XML or JSON technologies and libraries to consume,
    inspect, and manipulate fixed format data in existing solutions.
    Daffodil is also capable of the reverse by serializing or "unparsing" an
    XML or JSON infoset back to the original data format.
