Release Overview

Actions Pending

    • [skaet] drive a discussion to resolve disconnect between what we're calling rc vs. a beta 2. Should we do a beta 2 weeks before, or rc and be strict about it? How many bugs tested post RC? Publish policy statement. Possibly adjust RC milestone to work around easter for Natty. - IN PROGRESS
