Subject Ignite 2.8 Release: Time & Scope & Release manager
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2019 14:21:53 GMT
Hi Ignite Developers,

In the separate topic, we've touched the question of next release of Apache

The main reason for the release is Java 11 support, modularity changes
(actually we have a couple of this kind of fixes). Unfortunately, full
modularity support is impossible without 3.0 because package refactoring is
breaking change in some cases.

But I clearly remember that in 2.7 thread we've also discussed that the
next release will contain step 1 of services redesign, - discovery protocol
usage for services redeploy.

We have 2 alternative options for releasing 2.8;

A. (in a small way): 2.7-based branch with particular commits cherry-picked
into it. It is analog of emergency release but without really emergency.
Since we don't release our new modules we have more time to make it modular
for 2.9 and make Ignite fully modules compliant in 3.0

B. (in large) And, it is a full release based on master, it will include
new hibernate version, ignite-compress, ignite-services, and all other
changes we have. Once it is published we will not be able to change

Please share your vision, and please stand up if you want to lead this
release (as release manager).

Dmitriy Pavlov
