Subject Re: Github tagging, was Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Joshua 6.1 RC#2
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2016 19:44:15 GMT
IMHO, the tags on github are not formal releases.  The fact that github
marks it as a release is just an unfortunate side effect of how github
works.  So its not a violation of ASF release process.  May be good to
start a discussion on legal-discuss.  Let me know if you're subscribed, we
can talk more there.

Some projects have handled this by moving release votes to a different
(mirror/fork) of the project.  I don't see anything wrong with taking that
