Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Beginning "quiet week" for Neon.2

Regarding the N&N: has the mentioned message been sent and the bug created?

I find it useless work to manually copy our N&N into some AsciiDoc. It should be possible to just provide a link to the project's N&N. That's what we will do for Platform, JDT and PDE.

As I am sure you know, we are scheduled to release Neon.2 on 12/21/2016, at approximately 10 AM Eastern.

Between now and then is what we call "quiet week" -- a time for final acceptance testing and preparation of websites, etc.

While it is called "quiet", that does not mean there is nothing to do. While we do not update the dates in the "Final Daze" document for every update release, the concepts are the same (please read the document, if you never have). But otherwise, the main things are:

archive old releases

put final artifacts in their permanent home so they can be synced up the mirrors (but, leave them "invisible" to general public, until 12/21).

final testing, especially "update site" testing. Here are the links you need to know to simulate what "check for updates" will do once everything is in .../releases/neon:

Plus, there is one new thing and one change to the way we have done things in the past:

The new thing: Contribute to overall new and noteworthy (if you have new features, or are new to the update release). For "How To" information, see Overall Release New and Noteworthy.

The changed thing: There will no longer be a bug to list plugins that go into the help info center. Instead, as per Bug 499411we will automatically find all the "doc bundles" in the Sim Rel repository and automatically add them. This is still a work in progress but you can take a look at the Hudson test.infocenter job if interested. Eventually we should have a "staging" sort of URL you can use to test your help documentation.

If there is no other communication about Neon.2, then check back around 10 on 12/21 to make sure there are no "WAIT! ..." messages where we have to defer the release for some reason before you publicize the release.

As always, please ask if there are questions or issues.

Thanks to everyone for contributing to this update release.
