Subject Re: 4.4 Feature Freeze
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2014 04:50:39 GMT
Hugo can talk about this in more depth, but the idea is that you develop
your feature in your own branch (every now and then rebasing your work on
top of what's been put into master to keep it current).

At some point, there is what we call Feature Freeze (that was last week
Friday).

On this day (ideally beforehand, if reasonably possible), all new features
must be taken from your branch and put into the master branch. At some
point in the day, a new branch - in this case, called 4.4 - is made and
then master is used for the release to follow 4.4.

After Feature Freeze, all changes to 4.4 should be accompanied by a JIRA
ticket (ideally this would always be the case) and most of our 4.4 effort
is placed into testing what we have versus adding new features to it.
