Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache OpenWhisk 0.9.0-incubating
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2018 18:04:50 GMT

For the module main openwhisk to be released for the first time, we do not ship the test cases,
since there are many packages as the test data, we do not want to ship so far. After we configure
out how risky they are, we will ship the test cases.

Best wishes.

There's no such requirement for a podling release, especially not for
your first Incubator release.

I would expect that the released module has unit tests that pass when
building it, but that module not being usable in isolation is not a
problem, from the Incubator PMC's point of view.

Of course the ultimate goal is for OpenWhisk to release fantastic
software, we're not doing all this just to keep "the system" happy ;-)

But I think "priming the system" as Matt says, by releasing a single
module, will get us there faster and with less effort.
