[HACKERS] Upcoming back-branch releases

2016-03-14 Thread Tom Lane
In view of some rather important recent fixes such as commits bf7ced5e2dc8622f and 301cc3549c29aaa5, the release team has decided that it'd be a good thing to schedule a set of minor releases in the near future. The nearest convenient time seems to be week after next, that is, wrap Monday Mar 28

We're about due for a new set of back-branch update releases. After some discussion among the packagers, it seems the best window for getting this done before the holiday season sets in is next week. Also, as previously mentioned, we're experimenting with weekday rather than over-the-weekend

It's been almost three months since our last minor releases, and we've accumulated enough fixes to justify a new set of updates. The core team is planning to wrap new tarballs next Thursday for release Monday 3/15. If you've got any pending back-branch fixes, get 'em in soon.

It seems to be about time to put out 8.2.1, since the flow of new bug reports has ebbed. We're also overdue for updates of the back branches --- for instance, we recently realized that the current 8.0.x and 8.1.x releases don't know about the Canadian DST changes coming into effect in March, and
