RE: [cdt-dev] M7 confusion

Thanks, Doug,


Basically the source of confusion with milestones for me was the page that says:

  • Friday, May 11, 2007 - Milestone 7 (4.0 M7) - plan - Code freeze.

The code freeze date is the RC0 date which marks the beginning of the ramp down. All features should be implemented and only bug fixes of increasing criticality should be fixed marching towards the Europa release date of Friday, June 29, 2007.

Probably we should fix this on that page?

Subject: [cdt-dev] M7 confusion


I see people are still confused about M7. I don’t blame them. It’s odd that a milestone happens after our RC0. But to reiterate,


RC0 is April 27 ß Feature complete, bug fixing only after this date

RC1 is May 11 ß This is also known as M7 to satisfy our Europa delivery for Europa M7


Again the idea is that there is so much feature content going into 4.0, we need a full two months of rampdown to make sure the release at the end of June is of good quality. The Europa M7 is too late to meet our needs.


Please feel free to ask any question to make sure this is clear,
