Subject Re: Glide path to getting 3.5.x out of beta
Date Thu, 22 Nov 2018 09:06:36 GMT
Hmm.  Jira's a bit of a boneyard, isn't it?  And timeouts in flaky
tests are a problem.

I scrubbed through the open bugs and picked the ones that looked to me
like they might deserve attention for 3.5.5 or soon thereafter.
They're all on my watchlist:
(I'm not counting the Ant->Maven transition in that, which I don't
know much about.)

I'm trying out some more verbose logging for the junit tests, to try
to understand test flakiness.  But the Jenkins pre-commit pipeline
appears to be down?
