We will be able to review and discuss
more at our meeting next week (First Wednesday meeting) and in the months
ahead, but, a quick decision is needed if we plan to follow the same pattern
as previous years, since the first +0 date, for Mars M1 is August 8th!
Slightly more than a week away, with everyone else following two weeks
after that, ending the milestone on 8/22.
So unless there is a quick objection,
in the next few hours, I'll announce "the proposed plan" for
the first few milestones ... and we can fine tune as a group, in the weeks/months
Apologies for the short notice.
Assuming we want to follow the same
general pattern as previous years, I just took last years dates, and adjusted
to they lined up on the right day of the week, and for this (and next)
calendar year it turned out to be a simple "minus one day".
The only difficult part will be deciding
what to do with M6, as EclipseCon is a little earlier than usual next year,
and we normally finish M6 the week right before EclipseCon. So we'll need
to decide if we want to shorten the M6 period, finish it while EclipseCon
is happening, or lengthen the time and finish it after EclipseCon.
Or ... if anyone wants any huge radical
departure from past pattern, then that will take a lot of discussion anyway,
so figure we just as well get started with M1 and M2 being "as before".
If no objections raised in next few
hours, I'll send note to cross project list, include the initial proposed
dates, include a reminder about "how
to announce your participation", and mention
I'll be "setting up the builds/streams in a few days, for the Luna
SR1 vs. Mars aggregations. (Mars M1 does overlap with Luna SR1 RC1).
