|Re: [eclipse-dev] https://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/development/plans/freeze_plan_4_16.php notes|
I do not say that everybody will misunderstand that. I say that if you do not know that the „api and feature freeze“ on on 27 of May is not the start but the end of the RC1 state then you have to assume that M3 will end at that day looking at that page. The reason is that the M3 date is missing from this page.
I suggest to add it the next time to make it easier to get the current status when you point somebody to the rules.
Yes, I am kind of familiar with the rules but when I looked for such a page that makes it clear I did not find something that is suitable. Because of that I was not sure that I have current information and knowing that there have been lots of build issues because of infrastructure problems this time I though maybe something was delayed. I should have used
There it is clear.
Others pointed to that page and a mail on the mailing list that both imho did not include (or even contain wrong) information about the important point: where we are in the release process.
Thanks for updating the freeze plan to reflect the current status!
