Subject RE: [DISCUSS] define what/when a 4.0-beta should be
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 16:58:42 GMT
I vote for proceeding with the existing plan: alpha, beta at least one month later, final at
least one month later: roughly your #2, Robert.  Sticking to the plan seems worth the (potential)
extra month wait to me. - Steve

If I called a VOTE today on a beta I'm thinking the earliest we could
get it out would be Aug 1, and we want some time (at least a few
weeks) for people to try it out before then spinning out a final. On
the other hand I don't want to delay this thing too much because 4.0
has just taken forever.  And the alpha release seems to maybe have
provided us with the feedback we need... do we need another iteration?

So I see two choices:
1. skip beta and we just work towards a final release.
2. spin beta RC like, now, today, and plan on a final release in
september/october at the earliest (I imagine once we start talking
about "final" people are going to really want to get a few things
cleaned up first)
