Re: [incubation] Fast releasing projects

I think it will be good to get the Architecture Council to review the current release review process and to suggest improvements to the EMO. I feel it could be streamlined to better support more frequent releases with less delay and less overhead.  For example, the delay that results from a public review period seems pointless given that no real "public" in actual fact reviews these things during the review period...

provides some automation which I find useful.


Though the mandatory review period and the small number of review slots (2 per month)

Is in the way of fast release cycles.


Maybe we could get rid of the rigid release review process and replace it by a more

flexible one based on lazy consensus on a release review mailing list.


project publishes release records and IP log on release review mailing list and asks for release review

(not on the current fixed bi-weekly schedule, but at any date). If PMC accepts the release and

no one else objects on the release review list within e.g. 3 days the review is considered successful

and the release can be published.

Isn’t the Release notes (the new & noteworthy) a better format the outsiders audience?


Probably. However at the moment, I don't think such N&N external documents are sustainable enough (in term of URL location and so on) to meet the quality criteria of typical Eclipse governance.
