Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Qpid Wiki" for change notification.

= Qpid Release Process =

I think, this is a good time for us to discuss and agree on a release mechanism that's agreeable
to the Apache way.
As per my observations from projects like Axis2, Synapse, Tuscany, Geronimo ...etc the release
process is as follows.

We start with milestone releases (M1, M2 ...Mx) until we graduate from the incubator.
Once graduated we can start doing a couple of 0.9x releases before we hit the grand 1.0 release.

Here is the typical setup for any release.
Everything is decided based on a public voting on the list. (only binding votes are counted)

== Pre Release ==

  1. Create a wiki page and start capturing the feature/bug fix list for the release
  2. We can start a discussion thread and then come to a concensus on the final list
  3. These items should be tracked by jira or other means (jira is preffered)
  4. We can start a parallel thread on the release dates.

== Release Process ==

  1. We should do a code freeze and put out a release candidate (ex RC1)
  2. We should allow a minimum of one week for people to test/check out the RC
  3. If there are major issues maybe do a RC2 and follow the same process
  4. If a majority is happy then we can do a code freeze and cut out a release.

For incubator projects, I believe the incubator PMC has to vote on a release.
Cliff, Paul can you please confirm??

For the first release I will volunteer to cordinate it.
Comments are appreciated.
