Subject What stands between us and branching 1.7?
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2011 20:41:42 GMT
I'm sorry if I asked this before -- I've been asking individual folks for
over a month now, but I can't quickly find a public broadcast thread about
it, at least -- but I've been wondering lately:

  What, exactly, stands in the way of us branching for 1.7 stabilization?

ra_serf stabilization?  No... that's fairly well taken care of, and would
fit perfectly within in the scope of post-branch work anyway.

WC-NG conflict storage?  No... last I heard, we were going to ship with what
we have today.

WC-NG file externals?  Maybe... but what remains to be done?

Optimizations and performance stuff?  Sounds like stabilization to me.

Besides "the tests are passing", what -- if any -- acceptance criteria have
we established for this release to help guide us in this process?  "Must not
regress performance-wise versus 1.6?"  Something more?  Something else?

This certainly doesn't inspire confidence:

   <cmpilato> so, i think i missed it -- or just forgot it over the long
              holiday break -- but ... where do we stand on branching for
   <peterS>   that's the question everyone is asking each other.  nobody
              seems to feel comfortable with the big picture knowledge to
              actually answer
