Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Replacing Incubator Release Management guide
Date Fri, 30 Dec 2016 02:07:52 GMT
Dale,

Thanks.  Before publishing this, I was planning to remove the link on [5].
The policy docs are complete as they stand right now from my point of
view.  Since [4] points to [5] I think that's fine assuming the link from
[5] to [3] goes away.

I'm fine with having a link going from [2] to [5] stating that the two
constraints are simply repeated here.

This is what it looks like now

The <a
href="&root-path;/incubation/Incubation_Policy.html#Releases">Incubator
policies</a> apply two additional constraints to podlings for their
releases.  They are repeated here for clarity only.
