The maintenance repository and EPP packages
are complete for our warm-up maintenance candidate. We call it "warm-up",
simply because its main purpose is to remind us how to build together and
contribute to the maintenance release ... that is, it is not a true candidate
for release. We will start producing the real candidates in a couple of
weeks, with 3 short chances to conclude (RC2, RC3, RC4). See the release
plan  for complete details, but the last aggregation build concludes
on 9/15. Please try to make each of those three RCs true release
candidates ... fewer and fewer changes, if any.
Project leads especially, please keep
an eye on the repository reports.  Even for maintenance, a few missing
about.html files, and an unsigned jar have slipped back in. (I try
to open bugs when I can, but, honestly, I should not have to, for such
major things as missing about.html files and unsigned jars).
