Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] stable master and 4.6 release
Date Wed, 16 Sep 2015 07:38:20 GMT

Here is what we propose:

1. Only BLOCKER fixes to master. If there's something else that needs to
get in, it can be discussed with the RMs on a case-by-case basis.

-1 -ish
What you’re effectively saying is to freeze/block master from new changes until 4.6.0 releases
which could take anywhere from one week to many weeks. In reality that may be undesirable
and can contribute to loss of developer productivity time.

Few suggestions, though I’m not sure that best way to go forward: why not create a 4.6 branch
and merge it back when 4.6.0 releases? Alternatively, create a development branch on which
development can continue and we merge it back to master when that branch is stable enough
and 4.6.0 has released?

2. Atleast one of the reviewers of a PR should do the actual tests. We do
not have good CI in place and travis just does simulator tests.

+1 some of us talking in the background to setup an automated QA system to use existing marvin
tests to do long running integration tests but other than Travis or Jenkins (b.a.o) we don’t
have anything.

Until we
have a real hypervisor CI in place, manually testing the PR is a must.
Also, LGTM(or +1) should be accompanied with whats tested and why you are
giving LGTM.

+1 at least one person other than the author should have run the PR and tested it manually
or otherwise to increase reliance of the patch quality.
