Subject Re: [s2] 2.0.10 release - when?
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2007 16:41:17 GMT
The best way to put us in a position of regular releases is to attend
to the JIRA tickets, update the release notes, and test the
applications as often as possible. Any committer can do that as time
allows, without worrying about rolling a distribution.

It's also not necessary for there to be a single release manager. In
the past, we've often had one individual run point on the tickets,
notes, and testing, and then have another roll the final distribution.
In my experience, at least half of the work has nothing to do with
rolling the distribution, but just getting the tickets, notes, and
apps to the point where we can roll the distribution.

If someone is about ready to clear the decks for a 2.0.10 build, then
rushing out a 2.0.9.1 doesn't seem useful, since it would be
superseded by 2.0.10 anyway. But, if it helps, I would be happy to
roll either version at any time, if the tickets, notes, and testing
are otherwise done.
