|[cross-project-issues-dev] Maintenance builds (was Announcing a one week slip in the Mars.1 release (from 9/25 to 10/2))|
That makes sense but shows that we are just shifting the problem.
I see a requirement for
- regular base releases (yearly)
- maintenance releases (four monthly)
- responsive releases (four monthly)
Recognising that maintenance releases were being abused to provide responsive releases is probably good, but waving goodbye to maintenance releases is bad.
IMHO we need all three and so long as we try to make do with two we will be in trouble with some user community. It seems wrong that because some projects have abused the principles of maintenance, users of other projects that have observed maintenance discipline suffer.
