Subject [httpclient] 2.0 Bug/Feature classifications - request for comments
Date Mon, 22 Jul 2002 03:20:20 GMT
This is a proposed classification of the HttpClient bugzilla bugs.  They
have been carved up into 2 milestones, 2 betas and two release markers.
The rationale for the classification is as follows:

    - Milestones: Features that received the majority of votes and that
have the potential of impacting the external and internal interfaces.
There was some loadbalancing between the two, with the most interface
impacting features pushed to Milestone 1.
    - Betas: Bugs and documentation that must be addressed before the
use of HttpClient2.0 is encouraged.  Beta 2 was left empty as it will be
used for bugs that are reported in the 2.0 development cycle.  Another
beta or perhaps a release candidate may be required, depending on
    - Final: This is where we want to get to!  Left empty for any last
minute issues that come up from the betas.  I personally would like to
see us reach final before the end of August.
    - 2.1: This is for any features that can wait and/or received hardly
any votes.  There has been SO MANY changes since alpha 1 in October
already, it will be good to push as much as possible to 2.1

Please offer your opinions/suggestions if you feel that a bug has been
mis-classified.  If you would like to discuss technical details of a
particular bug, please start another thread or enter comments directly
into Bugzilla.  After a few days of discussion, I'll update bugzilla and
add the bug information into a more formal 2.0 release plan and call a
vote.  The race for 2.0 is on!
