Subject AW: [DISCUSS] Release Strategy for future releases
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2019 20:25:57 GMT
Hi Chris,

No offense. I agree that we should not stress those lovely people more than necessary.
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
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

    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 needed.
    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 update.
    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)
