Hey Julian,

The code is in a releasable state. A few questions:
- Building a binary of a library in Go is not useful/meaningful. For the release, we just need to tar gz the git repo and sign it. Do you still need a script for this? Otherwise we can write the instructions somewhere in the site/ directory.

- Still need to write the release notes. Can you have a look at https://github.com/apache/calcite-avatica-go/pull/2 to see if I have structured the site/ directory correctly? The PR is a bit stale, but it shouldn't be too much work to get it up to date.

Thanks, Francis.

The most important step is to come up with a release vote email with the same items 
as [1]: release notes, git commit, artifacts to be voted on in 
dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev <http://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev>, md5 and 
sha256 hashes. (The staged maven repository does not apply.)

Per apache policy, the release needs to be signed by a PMC member. I’ll be 
happy to do that. Or we could skip signing for the first couple of RCs.

Maybe write a shell script that creates the files, and a “howto” that the next 
RM can follow? I’ll be able to run the script when it’s time to create signed

I am wrapping up some things today and plan to test Avatica Go against the 
latest version of Avatica.

I think we'll be able to make a release by the end of the week.

I am happy to be the release manager for this one.

The latest version of Avatica is 2.3.1 under Boostport/avatica, I think we 
should make this release 2.4.0.

We have to make a release of Avatica Go soon (like, within the next month).

As I’ve said previously, a tar-ball of the source (plus checksums/signatures 
and release notes) is sufficient. But we are an Apache project, and projects 
must make releases.

Can someone please volunteer to be release manager? I am too busy.

What should the version number be?
