[sugar] Build streams; preparing for 8.2 release.
Thu Jun 12 13:12:23 EDT 2008
At the IRC software meeting yesterday we discussed creating some new
build streams in preparation for our August "8.2" release. These
streams were proposed:
* Unstable/Joyride: This will move immediately (well, within a day or
two) to be a copy of the "olpc-3" stream, which is a build stream
preparing for a switch to Fedora 9, instead of the current Fedora 7.
The Joyride release process will continue to be followed here. There
is still a lot of work to be done on the F9-based build: it will be
broken for a while as the kinks are worked out. Please help!
* Testing: This will also be a copy of olpc-3, but with a different
release process. Changes will be moved from unstable into testing
upon negotiation with the release engineer, Michael Stone. This
build stream will be used by our QA team and community to assess
the readiness of features for the 8.2 release.
* Stable: Stable builds are specified by their release name (e.g. 8.1.1,
8.2), and the procedure for packages moving from Testing into Stable
releases involves the Unscheduled Release Process:
Anyone familiar with Debian's build naming will see intentional
Apologies in advance for any misunderstandings or omissions from the
discussion that crept in to this mail -- don't take this summary as
ratified until this thread stops getting new replies. :)
