Subject Re: Non-Apache maintenance release for OOo 3.3?
Date Sat, 26 Nov 2011 07:51:14 GMT
Allen,

in the past the OpenOffice.org release process for micro releases looked 
like this:

* propose a tentative release data 3 months behind the release of the 
minor version
* propose issues and must haves for the micro release, new features and 
new strings (which would cause a new translation cycle) were not allowed
** regressions newly introduced with the prior release get high priority 
for the micorelease (must haves)
** regular defects can be nominated for the micro release by everybody
* once all nominated and accepted issues got fixed a release candidate 
was provided and there was one week given for feedback. In case not all 
issues got fixed or new regressions got introduced a new release 
candidate cycle was done.
* to ensure that this process comes to an end, there was a release 
committee with representatives from all areas (QA, Development, 
native-lang communities, marketing (PR), Linux distros, user experience) 
which decided on the final "go" for the release

for a 3.3.1 release I wouldn't change that process dramatically, so I 
have just a small list of issues and security fixes in mind, plus the 
changes we agree we have to do for branding. (I have one more favorite: 
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=112141 reintroduce color 
codes for mime type icons).

I'm not famliar enough with the ASF release process so I have no final 
proposal on how to do this for a 3.3.1 release, but I think we can use 
the old process as a basis. The new setup gives the opportunity to do 
some things better,

hth,
Martin
