Subject Re: Branch merges and 3.0.0-beta1 scope
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2017 18:12:11 GMT
Agreed. I was very clearly not advocating for rushing in features. If you have followed my
past emails, I have only strongly advocated features be worked in branches and get merged
when they are in a reasonable state.

Each branch contributor group should look at their readiness and merge stuff in assuming that
the branch reached a satisfactory state. That’s it.

From release management perspective, blocking features just because we are a month close to
the deadline is not reasonable. Let the branch contributors rationalize, make this decision
and the rest of us can support them in making the decision.

to "get in features".  While a couple of upcoming features are "a few weeks" away, I think
all of us are aware how predictable software development schedules can be.  I think we can
also all agree that rushing just to meet a release deadline isn't the best practice when it
comes to software development either.

to not rush in resource types was an appropriate response.  I'm sympathetic to the goals of
getting in a feature for 3.0, but it might be a good idea for each project that is a "few
weeks away" to seriously look at the readiness compared to the features which have been testing
for 6+ months already.
