Subject Re: [DISCUSS] releases going forward
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2012 00:12:26 GMT
Late to the party here folks, and this may have been covered in one of the
other threads about releasing. Automation is great. But all we can automate
is the preparation of release candidates. But the voting will always be
manual, and will always take 72 hours or more.

So the question shifts to: how often do you want to spam the dev list? How
often can the community be reasonably be expected to download the release
candidate and go through all of the tests?
