Subject Re: [Vote] Apache Lucene.Net 3.0.3 (Take 2)

Neal - I'm not sure what the issue is here? The signatures and checksums
are all present in the directory so anyone can verify that the files have
been signed by the Lucene.Net guys and that the files have not been
tampered with

This is normal Apache process, the release candidates are open to anyone
to test and vote upon (though only PMC members have binding votes). The
main point of making it available in this way at this stage is primarily
for the PMC to review and vote on the release.  This vote is for so there
are multiple eyes checking that the release meets the Apache guidelines
( in terms of licensing,
source code release etc.

Prescott - As far as I'm aware what you've done is completely fine though
you may want to check in with your incubation mentors if they are still
monitoring the project.

We use the same process for Apache Jena, the release candidates are
published in the Apache webspace of whoever is acting as Release Manager
for the release.  Since they are release candidates they should not be
uploaded to the official distribution area for the project because they
have not yet been approved by the PMC as a release (and uploading them to
the distribution area would get them mirrored across the entire mirror
network which is not what you want!)
