*Note:* the RC1, RC2 and RC3 were not submit for vote due an issue in release process when the maven artefacts are upload to nexus. For this RC6, the automatic maven upload inside build.xml was replaced by a semi-automatic upload with the maven-gpg-plugin.

*Note2:* the RC5 were not submit for vote due an little commit by Philippe :-) during the release process.
