Following Felix feedback, I rollback my +1 vote.
[-1]   I do not support this release because:

    - I am afraid JMETER_HEAP will disturb users
    - It is not clean that we use 2 different env variables
    - Same that mirror-server is broken
    - The warnings regarding Java 9 should also be dropped or a clear
    statement should be in documentation
    - This might introduce issues:
       - https://github.com/oblac/jodd/issues/567

OK I will prepare a new RC when we are ready.
Please, continue your tests with the RC6 to try to find other blocking issue in advance for the RC7 ;)

Would it be possible for next release to reduce the 72 hours or not ?

The ASF vote page don't indicate the 72h period. It's indicate into the lazy consensus. So (I suppose) if a majority of binding vote come into a small time after the begin of vote period, it's would possible to release more quickly...

[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.
