We are targeting for 4.8 M5 on January 26, 2017


Here is the schedule

*       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

*       The last Wednesday build is the release candidate every team signs
off on Thursday. 
*       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/M5  

*       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. 

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