4.17 (2020-09) M1 milestone reminders

Sravan K Lakkimsetti

Hi all,


Next week is the milestone week for 4.17 M1.


Monday: Last day of development (and even then, no "big changes").

After Monday 18:00 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

Live website: https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/news/4.17/


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.)
