Hello NetBeans community,

now that we have Apache NetBeans 9.0 Beta officially released to public we would like to start our traditional Beta testing program called NetCAT. We would like to send out the official invitation on Monday - February 26th but before we proceed Hermien and me would like to present our plan how NetCAT 9.0 will be organized and ask for constructive feedback. Please bear in mind to voice your concerns by the end of this week. We will attempt to address your questions or suggestions but we still hope you will simply like what we have prepared. :)

Here we go:

1. NetCAT 9.0 will roughly take 10 weeks i.e. ~2 months. We allocated 2 weeks for review of test specifications, followed by 4 weeks of testing and bug fixing phase, at the end finished by 3 week long community acceptance survey. For more details see our projected schedule [1].

2. The testing will be tracked in Synergy - NetBeans test specification and test run management system. NetCAT 9.0 participants will be divided into 9 tribes focusing on one of 9 crucial functionality areas each.

3. We have drafted quality criteria [2] which we would like to meet for the GA release. In short, we aim to fix all blocker issues, fix or waive all critical issues and fix all CA blockers. We would also like to take votes into account as you can read in the Bug Priority Guidelines [3].

4. Apache NetBeans 9.0 Beta will be primarily tested on latest JDK 8 and JDK 10.

Please let us know if we can fly with this plan. :)

Thanks for your feedback!
Best regards,
Jirka & Hermien
