Subject Re: [PLEASE READ] CouchDB 3.0 Update - Jan 30
Date Fri, 31 Jan 2020 16:42:03 GMT
OK Adam, just remember that CI needs to be rejiggered to work for this 
scenario, as `master` is protected. A minimum is a functional that runs FDB during `make check`, I presume. Ideally, 
we'd get Jenkinsfile.full working, too, but that's probably a larger 
task. (I need a break ;) )

Basically, we'd treat 3.x as our new 'master' for merging anything non-FDB, and open up master
for FDB releases. If FDB landing on master isn't a priority, we can continue with our traditional
forking of 3.1.x, 3.2.x, etc. off of master until FDB is ready to land there.
