Subject AW: [DISCUSS] Release Strategy for future releases
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2019 20:55:02 GMT
Hey Otto,

fair point. I think we should to decide a new release strategy. But if we consider to keep
it as it is now we should not have to vote.

Shouldn’t you call an official vote for something like this?

Big +1 for that ;-)

Hi Chris,

No offense. I agree that we should not stress those lovely people more than
So we keep our aim on 0.4 (with whatever accumulates till then) for now and
start regular releases when graduated.

Is this a plan?

Hi Julian,

I would +1 this, but please have one thing in Mind ... every release we do
requires us to check it (of course) ... but also we have to have people in
the Incubator also validate these releases.
Some people there are under heavy load and I would not like to increase
this load too much.

But how about starting with that as soon as we have left the incubator? I
would really like that.

Hi all,

perhaps some may find this email too early (as we are still in the process
of doing a Release) but I want to ask / discuss about how we plan to do
releases in the future.
Up till now, they were were infrequent due to the early stage of the
project but now I think we have stabilized well, we have stable APIs and
mostly new features coming in.
One problem we had most of the time was, that we had to work on “forked
releases” because the last official release lacked (newer) features we
Thus, I suggest that we start to release more often or even on a regular
schedule (like e.g. Calcite does it) to ship the new features soon.
Also this could help us, to teach more people how to release / rm.

As we are mostly shipping features, there’s nothing speaking against doing
minor (i.e. compatible) releases which makes it really easy for users to
Perhaps, we could aim for monthly releases (if we have things to release)
and already start the setup for that. I am really eager to get the PLC4X-88
(Triggered Scraper) merged and then shipped!
Next would then be 0.3.2 in early April.

What do you think of that concrete and more general?


PS.: If we move forward with graduation the release process is also
becoming a bit easier, as there’s only one vote necessary (and no longer
the second vote from the IPMC)
