Subject [DISCUSS] February Code drop (M3?)
Date Thu, 15 Feb 2007 15:45:56 GMT
We're getting to the end of February so its time to discuss what will  
drop and what we call it.  On the original set of goals this next  
drop would be beta-1 but based on recent e-mail discussions as well  
as IRC and some experimentation I think the soup needs a few more  
items before we turn the flame to simmer.  That said, I think that  
translates the February drop to be M3 rather than beta-1.

We've improved deployment, made a lot of plumbing changes, etc so  
I'll solicit people's input for the highlights of this next Milestone  
(and if we al concur this is the right designation).  If we're all  
tracking on this then I'd plan to follow the previous plan of  
branching at around 1700 next Wednesday (ET) of course not disrupting  
trunk and the progress that is being made.  This would mean that we  
are settling into a monthly release in tune with release early and  
often (even if its not soup yet ;-)

BEA recently announced that they have a developer release of WebLogic  
that has passed CTS so we're not alone out there in the world.  I  
have to admit it feels pretty good to be on the forming wave rather  
than paddling to catch one that has already left.

As far as assemblies are concerned I recommend using the same  
assemblies we did for last month as I don't think Axis or Cayenne are  
really integrated enough yet for people to try out.  correct me if my  
understanding is not correct.

Comments, and feedback welcome.
