I initially sent this to Josh.

Hash: SHA1

I created a release artifact based off of trunk. I copied trunk to a tag
under the tags area of the repo that is named release-2.1-RC1:


The artifact is an export from that tag. The artifact, MD5 and SHA1 sums, and
my GPG signature of it are available from my space on people.a.o:


The list of resolved JIRA issues associated with this release can be found on
the VCL 2.1 release page:


Installation instructions are on the Confluence site and in the INSTALLATION
file included in the artifact.

Aaron, Andy, and I have completed a test install of all parts and were able to
successfully create and capture a base image.

Please vote to publish this release.

(Question to mentors: Do I need to vote in a successive email in this thread,
or is this post an implicit vote?)

A different email is the custom.

The directory of the untared release is release-2.1-RC1. I would prefer apache-VCL-2.1-RC1-incubating.

I did a search through files for ncsu and found:

I'm not sure if we, ASF VCL, has a policy about authors being in files. Some keep them in, others feel that it detracts from the community aspect of the project and after a while the distinction gets blurred after many people have hand their hands in the code. Up to you guys. In any case I think these references to ncsu might need to be scrubbed.

What is ITECS?

Kevan makes a few points:

* Instructions on installation, prereqs, etc should be clear that a user must determine the licensing of the technologies that you are requiring/referring to/downloading. It's not clear to me if that information is being conveyed. Clearly, you require GPL, LGPL, and microsoft proprietary artifacts. Wondering how much of this needs to flow through legal-discuss... Prolly Alan and Matt have thought about this already.

I was not aware of this. We need to get a full laundry list of what's require and why and probably vet it w. legal-disc...@. I agree w/ Kevan we should be upfront and in your face about these requirements. IIUC, maybe it belongs in the NOTICE file?

* managementnode/bin/install_perl_libs.pl will download install libraries, IIUC. What are the licenses of these artifacts? Users need to be made aware of what you are doing for them...
