Upcoming Releases Discussion

Point release

@audrasjb, co-lead of 5.2.2, outlined some points about the small number of tickets for the milestone. Since more than 60 tickets are committed in trunk/5.3, the release team suggested looking at landing some of those in the minor. The criteria, per the release handbook: tickets need to be self-contained and may not add new functions/files/filters to Core.

As a result, we have made some minor adjustments to the schedule:

  • Release Candidate 1: Monday, June 10, 2019, 8:00 PM GMT
  • Bug scrub: Thursday, June 06, 2019, 5:00 PM GMT
  • Release Candidate 2: Thursday, June 13, 2019, 5:00 PM GMT
  • Final Release: Tuesday, June 18, 2019, 5:00 PM GMT

Major release

@desrosj reminded the group that @chanthaboune is still working on the logistics for the next major.

Got a ticket targeted for the milestone? Watching a few you’re really interested in? The team invites you to keep on scrubbing!
