+	* Any existing JIRA's intended to be featured are targegd for the upcoming release version.
+	* This the period for the community to respond and make specific requests if they have a
burning feature they would like to see prioritized in the next release.
+	* At the end of the 2 week period, the features are freezed.
+	* The upcoming release notes are advertised with only exception of bug fixes to be added

this phase if for focused release goal. More importantly the design and development happens
in parallel with 2 week prioritization phase, making it 4 weeks. 
+	* Brainstorm the major features added as epic's and stories and break them down into smaller
+	* Active development period.
+	* Address any deferred issues from previous releases

+	* Defer any un-finished issues to next release
+* Testing & Documentation - 1 week: This phase will focus on extensive unit level and
integration testing with iterative Release Candidates.
+	* The RC testing among other random testings will need to ensure all advertised release
features/bug fixes are properly tested through.
+	* Improve over all documentation along with creating release specific documentation.
+* Release - 1 week: 
+	* Continue to fix issues identified in RC testing. 
+	* When an RC is stable, call a release vote.

+Apache Airavata follows [Test Driven Development][tdd] development process. Details on the
process followed and example test cases are listed in Airavata TDD [wiki page][tdd-wiki].
 ## Providing input to roadmap
 Airavata Community comprises of project management committee/committers, contributors and
user community. The community inputs new features, improvements as epics, which are essentially
use cases that need to be further analyzed. The epics or larger use cases are further broken
into manageable stories. Based on developer interests and active community requests, the stories
are prioritized and tagged to an upcoming release. The release manager initiates a list of
features and bug fixes and community responds by highlighting pending JIRA's to be addressed
in the release. Once the release is planned, the design, development and release cycle spins
through the next iteration.
