Several have asked "is it OK if we
resubmit our contribution?", so thought I should clarify the process.
First, if you have missing "legal
files" or have "no license" in the software repository report,
then you either have to resubmit your contribution or withdraw from the
release. So feel free, its your choice. Keep us posted on either.
Second, if its one of the other "big
hitters", such as unsigned jars or 3 part versioning, or inconsistent
license in repository, then you either need to resubmit, or withdraw from
being in common repo (you can still release, just be in your own repo/download
site), or, third option, talk to your PMC and Planning Council representative
to file for an exception for your project. As long as there's a plan to
fix in maintenance, or similar, I don't think anyone would care too much
... (Well ... I would, but its not up to me :) its up to your PMC
and Planning Council rep). Again, keep us posted.
Third, for "other" ... if
you have a bad bug, etc., and are thinking of asking for a re-spin,
I don't think anyone would mind, if done by, let's say, 9 PM today (Eastern).
But keep in mind, last minute submissions often fail, so, don't just submit
and then go home to go to sleep :) ... you are not done until you have
a success contribution in 'staging'.
After that, after 9 PM Eastern, today,
I think we'll need to proceed on a case-by-case bases. If we have green
build at about that time (+/- 2 hours) I'll turn off "continuous builds".
Be sure to get the advice/support of
your PMC or mentors if needed.
Keep us posted ... thanks to everyone
for our final push.
