Hi, It is fast approaching time to elect the Release Manager for the next Evergreen release.
The Release Manager does not have to be a core committer, but does need to be familiar with Git and have already contributed substantially to the Evergreen project whether it be code or documentation. Nominations (including self-nominations) are due by 11:59 PM EDT on Friday, 24 March 2017. Nominations should be made by email to open-ils-...@list.georgialibraries.org with a Cc: to email@example.com. Replying to all on this email will also work. Nominees should send an email to both of the above mailing lists a statement about their relationship to the Evergreen community and their goals for the next release. The elected release manager will be expected to adhere to the established schedule for the release milestones. As was discussed during the Hack-a-way in the fall, the current plan is for the next release to be 3.0 and mark the beginning of community support for production use of the web staff client. The election will be held in the Evergreen IRC channel on freenode.net during the week of 27 March. Here is a Doodle poll to set a specific date and time: http://doodle.com/poll/dhsdx4vdr3qw2r2z Please note that, per yesterday's development meeting, this time around we are intentionally doing it before the Evergreen Conference to reduce the lag between the release of 2.12.0 and any any inhibition about merging to master for lack of a release manager. Everyone is invited to participate in the voting. Evergreen core committers who cannot make the meeting may submit their vote via email to the open-ils-dev mailing list.
