Re: [] Minutes from the August meetingposted for your review

Title: Bjorn Freeman
Planning Council Members,
I have added two sections to the PC Minutes to help answer Tyler's questions:

What does it mean to be "on" or "off" the train? First, any project is welcome to release simultaneously with any other project. The existence of the release train does not prevent, e.g., Mylar, from releasing at the same time as the Platform. The difference is two-fold: first, the Foundation expects to have some press activities around the train release; projects that are part of the train will get more attention than projects that are not. Second, the projects on the train are committing to help each other achieve the release. Thus bugs submitted by train members will likely get more attention than bugs submitted by non-members.


The Guidelines should be clear that this is the only Foundation document that you need to read - that this document includes all the relevant details from the Development Process. Currently the Guidelines are not comprehensive, but they should be because otherwise it is too much hassle for the developers to figure out what to read. Projects may have additional project-specific documentation augmenting the Guidelines.
