Subject Re: [DISCUSS] More Maintenance Releases
Date Tue, 23 Jun 2015 07:05:56 GMT
Thank you for clarification, Karthik.

I'd also like to work on stable release management with community.

I'm thinking of speedy release against <next version - 1> branch for
making community feedback faster (e.g. current next version is 2.8, so
cherry-picking to 2.7 and releasing it are useful work for users).

I know that code base of 2.7.1 is now freezing currently, I'd love to
work from 2.7.2 release if possible.

Cheers,
- Tsuyoshi
