Subject Branching and testing strategy for 0.22
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2010 22:19:06 GMT
I'd like to get started testing 0.22.

I plan to start making mini-branches for QA. These branches will be  
snapshots that QA can use for testing with an expected lifetime of two  
weeks each. Only bug fixes that are blocking QA will be applied to the  
mini-branches and every two weeks, the base of the branch will be  
moved to the head of trunk. This will allow QA to test a point in time  
(possibly with required bug fixes) with requiring development to  
continually maintain two branches.

To simplify automated builds, I'll call the branch the final name of  
"branch-0.22." But it will be rebased every two weeks or so.

Are there any concerns?
