Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Yetus 0.12.0 Released!


The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache Yetus Project are pleased to announce the release of version 0.12.0
of Apache Yetus.

Apache Yetus is a collection of libraries and tools that enable contribution
 and release processes for software projects.  It provides a robust system
 for automatically checking new contributions against a variety of community
 accepted requirements, the means to document a well defined supported
 interface for downstream projects, and tools to help release managers
 generate release documentation based on the information provided by
 community issue trackers and source repositories.

This version marks the latest minor release representing the community's
 work over the last 6 months.

Here are some, but not all, of some of the changes:

- Gradle should be working again
- The default Docker image has had many package dependencies upgrades and may start flagging new errors or failing, depending upon configuration
- GitHub tokens without usernames are supported again
- Preliminary support for GitHub Actions
- Docker build args are now supported
- Various changes and cleanups to some of the built-in reporting options
- Newer versions of Maven are supported
