Hi All,
 
Eclipse 4.9 M3 Stabilization starts next week with a goal to deliver on August 24, 2018.
 
The build schedule has been updated and can be downloaded from 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.
    • 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
      The rolling N&N content for 4.9:  https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.9
  • 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.)
 
Thanks & Regards,
Lakshmi Shanmugam
