Subject Re: Proposal to Include GEODE-7079 in 1.10.0
Date Thu, 15 Aug 2019 18:08:04 GMT
While we can’t fix *all known bugs*, I think where we do have a fix for an important issue
we should think hard about the cost of not including that in a release.

IMO, the fixed time approach to releases means that we *start* the release effort (including
stabilization and bug fixing if needed) on a known date and we *finish* when new believe the
quality of the release branch is sufficient.  Given the number of important fixes being requested,
I’m not sure we are there yet.

I think the release branch concept has merit because it allows us to isolate ongoing work
from the changes needed for a release.

+1 for including GEODE-7079.
