oh, another thing (which may be just the way apache works): I literally had to dig out an svn client and get the code from the svn repo. There is no tag (neither 2.2 nor 2.2RC6) on github (github.com/apache/velocity-engine). There are a bunch of other RC tags (for 2.0 and 2.1). This may just be a quirk on how the git mirror in apache works; but I would have expected to find the RC tags there.
