      Description

      The current HowToRelease wiki document says that 64-bit linux native libs are optional for a release. However, we had them in all 0.16.x, 0.17.[0-1], and 0.18.0 releases. Provided the fact that 64-bit computers become more common nowadays. We should make this binary built and included in release.

        My primary desktop that I use to build releases is not 64-bit. Perhaps we need a 64-bit Linux box at Apache that committers can use for release builds? Until then, however, I don't think we can add this requirement.

        Really? Then what's the build box used for previous 0.16+ release?
        In those releases, we have 64-bit native libs.

        The dev box of whoever built that release, typically the person who calls the release vote. Nigel built most of the 0.16 releases, I think.

        we have specific release and (test release) VMware images @work for cutting releases

        http://smartfrog.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/smartfrog/trunk/core/release/doc/creating_release_artifacts.sxw

        This works well as you can do a release test in the background while editing your local copy, and the release machine account lacks the ability to commit changes; nobody ever edits stuff there or fiddles with the settings to meet local developer needs.

        The biggest problem is that 24h before the release you need to bring the images up to date, and that can break the build; one update of RHEL5 switched java back to gcj, for example.

        It should be possible to create a 64-bit CentOS or ubuntu vmware image to share around for people cutting releases, just rather large.

        I updated the HowToRelease wiki to make the 64 bit binaries required.
