[x] +1  I support this release

I found three minor bugs:

* in bin/mirror-server.*. Those scripts are referring to log4j 2.8.2 while we have 2.10.0 in the lib path. The mirror-server will not start with those values.

* the HEAP variables in jmeter.sh and jmeter.bat are named differently (and are documented with their correct names), but JMeter prints out to modify JMETER_HEAP in the batch file. We should probably name those two variables (HEAP for batch and JMETER_HEAP for shell) the same. Apart from this the user should not edit the shell scripts, but place those variables into bin/setenv.* :)

* to run ant test I have to unset the variables LANG and LC_*. Otherwise the tcp tests will fail as there are language dependent error messages embedded in the csv files that get compared.

You continue with your +1 vote or you prefer apply a -1 vote (and go to a new RC)?


[  ] +0  I am OK with this release
[  ] -0   OK, but....
[  ] -1   I do not support this release (please indicate why)

The vote will remain open for at least 72 hours.

The PMC members please indicate the mention "(binding)" with your vote.

Note: If the vote passes, the intention is to release the archive files
and rename the RC tag as the release tag.

Thanks in advance!


*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.
