Subject Re: We really need to get going with the podling report
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 20:08:22 GMT
In answer to the “How does the podling rate their maturity?”. The incubator report used
to have categories "Ready to Graduate", “Some Community Growth", "No Release" and "Still
Getting Started.” Out of these, I think “No release” fits best. You can add that the
first release is well under way.

"We will have our first release this week” is a bit optimistic. Remember you need to create
a release candidate, pass a vote on the Quickstep list (which takes 3 working days), repeat
if there is a problem with the RC, and then pass a vote on the incubator list (which takes
3 working days). Again, the incubator vote might fail, and in fact probably will the first
or second time.

A true statement is “we are almost ready to start a vote on our first release candidate”.
