It's not so much dumping it as keeping it running that I find difficult :-) What we're talking about here is not really release process but development process. I'm certainly not intending to stand up for big cumbersome processes. To my mind, prompt management of Tuscany defects according to >their< rules is a basic courtesy to the Tuscany developers who are kind enough to to help us, that's all. OTOH, this test-driven development thing was my personal response to the confused state that I alone had let the bug tracker get into, which took me a few days to disentangle. I would really like the team to stick with it even now that Matthew is working on SDO as well as SCA, because I do believe that a smaller amount of work earlier will save us more time later, and reduce the number of unwanted side-effects that we see. Documenting how the project is run is a big undertaking. I think it would be a Good Thing, and to be authoritative, one that all the projects leads would need to take part in. It just so happens that I have on my desk right now a copy of Karl Fogel(my hero)'s book Producing Open Source Software, and he points to the Hacker's Guide to Subversion (http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/www/hacking.html) as a good example of project guidelines (well he would say that, wouldn't he?). Would you like me to create a wiki page with the subheadings defined in that document? If everyone likes that idea, then I promise to contribute some stuff under some of the subheadings.
