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