Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache ODF Toolkit 0.6-incubating(RC5)
Date Tue, 21 May 2013 05:56:18 GMT
Hi Joe,

thanks for your feedback. This is my first release and only the second 
release of the Odftoolkit so I am glad to get some guidance on things we 
missed so far.

Ok, I will put the binaries separately and only add the source zip.

Thanks, so far I got the impression that the most important place to put 
my key is at
I am not sure yet how to upload files to the dist folder but I'll figure 
that out.

As those changes don't require any changes to the source tree I think we 
don't need to vote on the dev-list again but only on the incubator list?
