I'll just remind everybody that, starting with Zope 2.9 and Zope 3.2, we are switching to time based, rather than feature-based releases. We will make feature releases of Zope 2 and Zope 3 every 6 months, starting this December. I suggest a manditory feature freeze at the beginning of the previous month, so November 1 for the next releases.
Switching to a time-base schedule is a good thing but several things should be taken into account from the point as release manager slave:
- the trunk is no longer a development area. Developments must happen on branches and will be merged into the trunk as soon as the stuff is stable. I won't be acceptable to have half-baked stuff in the trunk. This will hold up the release schedule.
- people *must* show *more commitment*. If there are outstanding issues then I do expect that the people in charge work on the resolution in time - this means for me not weeks or months. From my work over the last two years or so I can only say that it is a *very big* pain to run after people to get things fixed. There are some code parts e.g. the ZODB which are known in detail to a handful of persons. I do expect a commitment from these people and especially from the companies these people work for to get a certain amount of resources to help resolve outstanding issues - but not resolving issues somehow but in time.
