in today's developers meeting we made a plan on how to make Sucrose 0.86 
a good and solid release. And of course we need YOU to make it a 
success. Here are the items with their champions and where we need help:

a) Get the tarballs of the 0.85.6 release out tonight [erikos, tomeu]

b) Make good release notes [erikos with community help]

c) Make rpms [tomeu for Fedora, Aleksey for jhconvert, YOU for your 
distribution of choice]

d) New Soas release [Sebastian]

e) Announce widely as soon as possible
[YOU can help here to announce for your distribution where the release 
is packaged, i.e. distribution's planets, mailing lists]

f) Get the triagers ready [To be determined]
We are looking for a champion of this item. Duties: Organize daily, or 
every second day meetings for triaging bugs with your squad. Mainly 
being responsive to incoming bugs. You can read more about how cool the 
BugSquad is at: http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/BugSquad page and erikos 
himself is happy to answer any questions to how we did rock back in the 
days ;p

g) Testing plans [To be determined]
Each feature that landed in 0.86 contains a test plan 
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/0.86/Feature_List. Some of the tickets that 
got fixed do contain test cases as well. Basically we are looking for 
someone or a group of people that arrange those items on a wiki page so 
that testers can test them.

h) Testing teams
Once we have the packages in the distributions, we will announce it on 
the mailing list. You are welcome to report bugs you find into our bug 
tracker. Of course we would welcome any efforts to form testing teams or 
arrange for testing days! Best to use the mailing list to coordinate 
those efforts - so as many people as possible can join.

i) Bug-fix team
Work closely together with the triaging and testing team to get all the 
bugs out. You don't have to be as quick as Aleksey to contribute, just 
pick one of the bugs intended for 0.86 and submit the patch following 
the guidelines at: http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Development_Team/Code_Review

j) Plan the bug fix releases
We will announce a plan for the time after the 0.86 release 
We will definitely have 1 or two bug fix releases. So stay tuned.

Happy bug-fixing, testing, triaging, packaging and releasing to everyone,
    Your release team
