Subject Re: Time to starting thinking about cutting the 1.11 release branch?
Date Mon, 21 Oct 2019 19:18:07 GMT
Bruce, that sounds like some great work to get in.

Given this is a discussion about getting our release cut and shipped on our
quarterly release train. How does this fit in with the two proposed dates
of cutting 11/4 or 10/25? Are you suggesting to keep 11/4 as Owen original
proposed?
