Subject Re: [VOTE] Releasing Apache Metron (incubating) 0.3.0-RC1
Date Thu, 24 Nov 2016 17:53:08 GMT
Hmm thought I voted +1 already

RE Julian's concerns - the artifact includes "incubating" so that passes
the incubator requirement.  The requirement doesn't say that it has to
include it in the pom's version.

RE Justin - that's a potential issue, but is also how github works.  Since
they're doing mirror and the release off their master, that's going to
appear that way.  Either we need to say that release votes don't happen off
of master (e.g. the way BatchEE does it which some IPMC members didn't
like) or they do and we ignore the fact that github is overzealous in its
release notices.
