> My preferred timeline would the the following:
> * Beginning of February: freeze master for big changes (adding new
> boards is no problem)
> * Beginning of March: branch off 20.3 release branch
> * 1 week after the branch was created: tag and build 20.3-rc1
> * 3 weeks later tag and build 20.3-rc2
> * 3 weeks later tag and build 20.3 final
Is this fixed or relaxed timeline? :-) I mean, are those steps going to happen
as they're defined or they can slip by some days/weeks/months?
Looking at the recent past, and I think, that we should learn from that
experience, it would be nice to define who/what can delay this proposed
timeline, release blockers so to speak.
Thinking about it, just this two points came to my mind:
- unfixed security issues we're aware of
- unfixed bug which could lead to:
* bricked device
* preventing access to the device over SSH or LuCI
Those issues needs to be properly reported at respective bug tracking
system and confirmed/reproducible by at least one more person.
