Subject Re: Minor release cadence for branch-1
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2015 20:48:44 GMT
It sounds to me like we have consensus around monthly for patch releases
and minor releases on demand, provided we can find RMs.

Would it be reasonable to keep all the minor release lines active until we
have a newer major release? At that point we could keep just the most
recent minor release going so long as there's demand.
