Thanks for touching base. We understand how work can get pretty
weren't any things we had specifically asked you about, but there
items we've asked about on the list from mentors that have gone
1) Confluence space for main documentation
Other projects are using a separate Confluence space for their main
documentation and then having a cron script copy the autoexported
their official documentation web space. We'd like to have another
created for VCL for that purpose. I asked on the infrastructure
this and was told that the future of Confluence at Apache is

there's a better chance of Confluence sticking around. So, could we
I haven't played much with the Wiki. I'll see if I can get Alan or
Kevan to provide some comments on this. If not, I'll follow up for you.
2) CLA committers group in Confluence
This is very related to #1 since only people with a CLA on file are
contribute to official project documentation. Can we get a
committers group created that contains everyone with a CLA on file?
Tried setting this up in the admin and got stimied, will need to
3) Performing a release
Other than the things marked TODO, does the following page correctly
the process we need to follow to cut a release:
The high level things look right. I think it is important to note
that there are two aspects to releasing: Apache requirements and
In the Wiki it was mentioned that JIRA issues should all be resolved,
that is a project decision (a good practice I'll agree) but not an
Proper headers and such are requirements as well as signing code.
Never heard of signing an announcement but I may have missed this
before. Definitely need a key for your Apache ID.
4) group for Jira committers role
In order to use the "log work done" function in Jira, a person needs
to be a
member of the Committers role. Rather than adding everyone needing
that individually, would it make more sense to have a Jira user
that role and then add people to the group? If so, can we get that
created in Jira?
Currently the following people have project admin in JIRA:
Aaron Peeler (fapeeler)
Andy Kurth (arkurth)
Brian Bouterse (bmbouter)
Josh Thompson (jfthomps)
It looks like the other committers do not have an ID in JIRA or
created something different than their apache id.
I created a group called vcl-developers and put the folks I could find

Andy Rindos contacted me today and said there were some things people
had asked me for but hadn't heard back. I'm checking my e-mail
to see if its been eating e-mails. While I do that, if there was
something specific I was supposed to do, etc. Ping me and I'll follow
it up. I'll search through the archives. Release related perhaps ?
