Hi Dave, > (1) Due to the world wide / volunteer nature of an Apache project VOTEs require a minimum of 72 hours. > (2) In the Incubator each release will often require two votes.
Should the two votes be parallel or sequentially? If sequentially, the two votes will take 72 * 2 = 6 days, about one week? (I am worried that it is too long. 3 days probably be reasonable.) And, @Shenyi and @Wenli, I think we may take advantage of the procedure of the 72 hours, if the tag to be released can be traded as a "beta version", can be tested by volunteers, and eliminate "recovery build" we used to face. But, if possible, how the tag to be released can be downloaded by volunteers? Should we provide the "download of beta" in echarts website? 2018-04-17 12:24 GMT+08:00 Dave Fisher <dave2w...@comcast.net>: > Hi Wenli, > > With my mentor hat you should know that in the Incubator it is hard to > predict how long it will take to do a release. > > A few standards apply: > > (1) Due to the world wide / volunteer nature of an Apache project VOTEs > require a minimum of 72 hours. > > (2) In the Incubator each release will often require two votes.
