Thanks for taking this on, Julian!The vote for Avatica 1.13.0 has closed and I plan to release the 1.13.0 soon (I need to wait for the docker hub repository in INFRA-17333  to be created, otherwise the docker hub build will fail once I push the tag for rel/avatica-1.13.0.
I've promoted the 1.13.0 repository in nexus, so this should not block Calcite 1.18.0-rc0.

Thanks Julian! Unfortunately with family visiting this weekend, my bandwidth is currently fairly low but I'll try to churn through some PRs early this coming week.

I volunteer to be release manager for Calcite 1.18, and propose that we make an RC on Monday. There are a lot of PRs (107 open currently). I can’t get through them all myself, so I will need help reviewing & merging them. (If you are committer, look in the JIRA case to see whether someone has begun reviewing the PR. I am reviewing several right now.) Even with help, we are not going to get to all PRs. That will have to be OK; it has been too long since we had a release, and we just don’t have enough active committers to deal with the number of incoming contributions.

Am I correct to assume that we need to release Avatica 1.13.0 before Calcite 1.18.0? If so, I am able to be release manager for Avatica if no one else is interested.

Unfortunately I won'tbeable to volunteer to be release manager this time around, but I'll trytoset aside some time to go through some PRs.

I think we should aim for a first RC a week from today (Friday 26th October). Can we have a volunteer to be release manager? Also, there are lots of PRs to review and merge. Please help out with that task, committers. Julian On Thu, Sep 20, 2018 at 11:00 AM Julian Hyde <jhyde@xxxxxxxxxx>wrote:We’ll be sure to get PRs into the release.
