Discussion: Consider Delaying WordPress 5.2 RC1 Date

In today’s devchat, I raised a concern about the number of tickets still open in the milestone. RC1 had an initial target date of today, but with 43 open tickets it doesn’t seem like a sound decision to continue with that date.

After a lot of discussion about upcoming dates (for time off, holidays, and other prior engagements) there were a couple of suggestions for how to adjust the timeline:

Favored Suggestion

  • Beta 4: April 18
  • RC 1: April 24
  • RC 2: April 30
  • Release May 7
