Meeting Notes

1.8.0/1.7.1 Release Planning & Schedules, Documentation Mgmt, JIRA review

  • Reviewed JIRA Issues - ended with issue DS-658
  • 1.7.1 Schedule & Coordinator
    • Peter Dietz volunteered to coordinate 1.7.1
    • 1.7.1 will be a bug-fix only release
    • Code should go into 1.7.x Branch
  • 1.8.0 Schedule & Coordinator
    • Still need a volunteer to Coordinate
    • Two potential schedules proposed:
      • #1 - Release in 9mos (Sept) – see above
      • #2 - Release in 10mos (Oct)
    • Many seem to think 12mos release schedule after that is better. So, we would potentially standardize to always release in the Fall.
    • Most seem to like the ideas of several "beta" releases before feature freeze.
  • Some discussion of Documentation process
    • We need a Documentation Team – Jeff cannot do this alone
    • The wiki is working well, but we need a group to keep us "honest". At the end of the 1.7.0 release, there was a scramble to fix docs issues, because of a lack of pre-planning & no team to double check things as we went along.
    • Ideas/proposals on improving Documentation process are welcome.
