Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache OpenMeetings 2.1.0 Release Candidate 1
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 23:00:27 GMT
@George: I will move that discussion to the vote thread on
dev@openmeetings.apache.org, I don't think that there is a need to put that
private.

About the release process, voting and potential fixes after the release:
A RC is a candidate for a release. If there is no negative vote then it
would be released.

If the Vote is positive together with the release a branch "2.1" will be
created.

A potential critical issue could be fixed in that branch, any release (or
release candidate) of that branch 2.1 would have the version name 2.1.1,
2.1.2, 2.1.3, et cetera.

But while there is a candidate, you would just vote negative or raise an
issue and the RC is rejected and create a new RC.

About the two concrete issues that you've raised:
1)  Why do we have the “Domain” field, which confuses users, when there is
only one option to select? This option has no meaning to users, so why
display it if there are no valid options for users to select?
=> This should really not happen at all. I actually never saw that
behavior. I only get that checkbox if there are more then one option that
you can choose from.
Can you give some more details about that to reproduce it?

2)  The field name “Username or mail”, what does “mail” mean? OK, I know
that the actual text is “Username or mail address”, but the text gets
truncated, and so the displayed text becomes incorrect wording.
=> that is odd and true. It is only a minor thing and probably nobody did
realize that there is a word hidden behind the inbox :) I think its a 5
minutes thing to fix so it is probably no big deal to do that and create a
second RC.

@Maxim You are right about the wrong documentation.
The Vote does not need any IPMC vote, since we graduated only our PMC vote
is needed. Although as this is our first release we should be carefully
reviewing our release and updating our guides to make sure that we
completely understand the changes in the process as Top Level Project.
So I think removing the Incubator specific part in the Release Process is
fine.
