The question was raised on whether we
need an earlier performance pass in 3.6. When performance work is done
at the end of the cycle there is less freedom to make bigger or cross-component
changes. Discuss with your component lead and the topic will be revisited
If component leads notice their component
has committers that have been inactive for several years, feel free to
prune them. The process is to send them an email asking if they are ok
with being removed, and if they accept or don't reply, forward the request
to the project lead/PMC, who has the ability to remove them via the portal.
There will be a mass update of LATER/REMIND
bugs as part of the bugzilla migration. We will automatically transition
LATER bugs to WONTFIX, and REMIND bugs to INVALID. We stopped using these
states 3-4 years ago so these are all very old bugs. If you want to take
different action on these bugs, you need to deal with them before August
29. If there is a bug you really care about that is in one of these states,
just reopen it or ask the bug owner to do so.
There will be extra 3.5.1 builds this
Friday and Monday in advance of 3.5.1 RC2 next Wednesday. Kim will send
out an updated build schedule.
