Subject Apache Serf 1.4.0 / 2.0.0 (and 1.3.9)
Date Wed, 07 Oct 2015 11:30:59 GMT
	Hi all,

I'll have to report progress to the ASF board in a few days, but I don't
have much to add over the previous report.

I don't see a real solution yet on how we can release a Serf 1.4.0 soon.
Greg's solution might work but it feels like another hack to me. When I
talked to Ivan in Berlin we came to the conclusion that it might be easier
to just go directly to Serf 2.0 and resolve the bucket problem properly
(with a way for future extension) and get the thing released.

Subversion 1.9 is already compatible with a Serf 2.0 -to allow testing
against trunk- and I don't think it would be that hard for other users like
Openoffice to enable support for that.

The plans to release 1.4.0 are now well over a year old and we should really
get back in a releasable form.

As a small intermediate step Ivan and I have been working on getting a new
1.3.X release ready with quite a few bugfixes we accumulated over the last
year. This version passes all tests on the various buildbots we setup on

What steps do we need here to get this version released as a tarball?
(I think most releases were created by Greg and Lieven and there is no real
release procedure yet)

After the tarball is created we can probably copy the Subversion/ASF
procedure of adding it in the 'dev' area, getting signatures, etc.
