Re: [eclipselink-dev] Time to cut a new 2.7?

It's been since January since the last 2.7 version cut, if our goal was one release per quarter, then we've already missed 2 point releases in the time since then.  Of the list you've cited, how many are considered stop-ship, and how many could be deferred to the next point release of 2.7?

where when first part of both sentences ("go through open PRs" and "evaluate open issues") is done, answer to your question can be given. Second part of both sentences goes a step beyond what is required right now but maybe there is some low hanging fruit we could add to the release. I don't have all existing issues and PRs in my head, sorry.

 If there are blockers, which exact bugtracker #s/Github
PRs are needed?

    that is on the table. We should see if we managed to fix an issue we
    had
    tomorrow, so far it seems to be on the good way but keep fingers
    crossed.

    Few remaining TODOs, if you/anyone want(s) to help with them:
    - compare PRs merged to master with those in 2.7 to see if something
    worth to be in 2.7 is there, eventually prepare PR backporting what is
    missing (or what is in 2.7 and not in master)
    - fix for bug 550542 (PR #530) is something we really want to have
    in 2.7
    - go through open PRs and close (either merge or reject) ~50% of them
    - evaluate open issues - I can see some of them can be closed as
    already
    fixed
    - Radek is currently investigating some Oracle DB related failures he
    noticed (..and Will apparently as well)

    I believe that with some help, all this can be done by Monday. If it
    will be, and I believe it will, we'll work towards releasing 2.7.5
    using
    new build infrastructure, so the old one can be retired (actually old
    one needs to be retired before new one can be enabled[1], so there will
    be some time during which travis will be the only thing running some
    builds/tests)

    thanks,
