It's surprising how quickly the relaxing
summer goes by, eh?
It turns out our Mars M1 is "next
week" (our +0 deliverables due on 8/8 -- and there will be a 2 week
window for everyone else, so the "Simultaneous" Mars M1 will
be complete on 8/22).
This means our "stabilization week"
begins this Sunday 8/3, when we start doing 2 I-builds per day, from Sunday
8 PM to Wednesday 8 PM with the usual sign-off on 8/7.
New and Noteworthy contributions should
be made on by end-of-day Wednesday, 8/6 -- and we are going to try a new
procedure this development cycle. Instead of putting N&N in the "news
repository" (and copying a bunch of files around) we will put it directly
in our "website repository". See bug 437930
All component leads should have access
to this website repo, and if you've never used it, the URL is
In the event a component lead can not do it (such as on
vacation, or similar) and in the rare case the person they delegate to,
does not have write access, you can simply reply to this request with attached
patch, or add to a bugzilla, and we'll be sure it gets in there.
I have updated our build
schedule with all this information -- just for M1,
so far -- but wanted to broadly send out this note to increase the chances
everyone sees it ... since it has caught me be surprise and we are so close
to the deadlines.
And, don't forget, our Luna SR1 RC1 is just a couple of
weeks away -- but, we'll worry about M1 first.
