Eclipse Photon M2 Stabilization starts next week with a goal to deliver on
Sep 15, 2017.


The build schedule has been updated and can be downloaded from
<https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/platform-releng/buildSchedule.html> here.


Please note 

*         Monday: Last day of development (and even then, no "big
changes"). After Monday 20:00 ET, no feature work or unrelated fixes are
allowed -- only regression fixes. 

*         Tuesday: All-day test pass. Nobody should develop or fix
anything. Literally spend the entire day testing. 

*         Wednesday: Fix day with a focus on fixing regressions found
during the test day (Tuesday). No unrelated fixes. Review and thoroughly
test all commits. 

o   The last Wednesday build is the release candidate every team signs off
on Thursday. 

o    The "New and Noteworthy" entries are due on Wednesday evening:
Git repo: ssh://git.eclipse.org/gitroot/www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news.git
Gerrit: ssh://git.eclipse.org:29418/www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news.git
Live website:  https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.8/M2/

*         Thursday: Sign-off after re-testing, or at least confirming no
changes have been made to your component's code since the last time the
component was tested well. 

*         Friday: Build is officially declared and made available. 

o    The master branch stays closed until the milestone is officially
released. (That is, it is not enough that your component has signed off.)

No new code changes can be made until the milestone is officially
declared. That is, it is not enough that your component has signed off.
