Subject Upcoming 4.8, 4.9, and master Freeze
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2016 05:18:36 GMT
All,

The 4.8.2.0 and 4.9.1.0 releases have taken more time than expected to finalize.  Per our
original schedule [1], 4.9.2.0 and 4.10.0.0 were scheduled to freeze yesterday (18 September
2016).  I propose the following schedule and end-of-life (EOL) changes:

    * 4.8.2.0 is still open, but 4.8 EOL is scheduled for 19 September 2016.  I propose freezing
the 4.8 branch this Sunday, 25 Sept 2016, and extending the EOL to 31 October 2016.  This
extension will provide 4.8 users with a slightly longer support period to compensate the schedule
delays.  With one week to test and one week for RC voting, the 4.10.0.0 release date would
be pushed out to 10 October 2016.
    * Since we are still working to close out 4.9.1.0, I am proposing that we combine 4.9.1.0
and 4.9.2.0 into the 4.9.1.0 release, and extend the freeze date to 25 Sept 2016 in order
to close out open issues.  With one week to test and one week for RC voting, the 4.10.0.0
release date would be pushed out to 10 October 2016.
    * Extend the 4.10.0.0 freeze date by one (1) week to this Sunday, 25 Sept 2016.  With
one week to test and one week for RC voting, the 4.10.0.0 release date would be pushed out
to 10 October 2016.

Assuming these changes are acceptable, i will update the release schedule [1] to reflect the
new dates and cascade the changes out to future releases by COB Monday (19 Sept 2016).

I have captured a list of open PRs and JIRA tickets to target for 4.8.2.0, 4.9.1.0, and 4.10.0.0
in a Google Sheet [2].  Please review and let me know if any additional items should be added.
 Of note, we have two potential blockers for all three (3) releases — CLOUDSTACK-9489 [3]
and CLOUDSTACK-9497 [4].  Finally, except for blockers, these are best effort targets.  If
they are not closed out by 25 Sept 2016, the release branches will be frozen and any open
PRs will be deferred to the next release cycle.

Thanks,
-John
