Subject Re: M4 -- 24 hour notice of branch
Date Fri, 08 Jul 2005 06:23:52 GMT
You're starting to sound like me :) Alan and Jacek are always putting
me back in line when I go "release nuts".  What can I say, the idea of
my code going out to people gets me a little excited.  Not my fault :)

We can consider as a group if we want to hold up the branch for these
improvements, but the idea behind the branch is that only
critical/showstoppers go in so we can go ahead with QA and TCK

Also, IMHO, I would really really like to see us release no later than
every six weeks or so if we can pull it off.  Don't know how anyone
else feels about that.

Thoughs from the group?
