Subject Re: [ASF4.2.1] Release Notes
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2013 09:20:17 GMT
So the -1 is because of the lack of rn and upgrade path docs, right, I
think I proposed earlier this thread to release after the doc
hackathon privided that. I wasn't really explicit about it I think as
no one commented on this strategy. Would that be acceptable to you all
(especially David and Sebastien)?

I agree btw that docs must be available, but I don't think these have
to be as stable as the release. We should allow for improving the docs
on a release if needed. The net result of what I am proposing is that
there will be a release and a docs rc. This is what the splitting of
of the docs was about in my view,. Makes sense?

If not, we should not try to make CCC Europe with 4.2.1. I think this
is what the hurry is about

Separate repo of the docs or not.

with the way it was done in prior releases (explicit listing) and in 4.2 (which pointed to
the RN). We need consistency. What happens if someone changes this jira filter ?

 This runs against master and has been
failing for a while.
