We are scheduled to promote and contribute 4.18 RC2 to the simrel on
Friday the 5th of December.
Don't forget to consult the endgame plan regarding release candidates:
Here is the schedule:
Wednesday 2nd December -- Release Candidate 2 build
Thursday 3rd December -- 1-day test pass against RC2 and sign-off
Friday 4th December -- 4.18 RC2 Promotion and contribution to SimRel
Note in particular the end game plan section concerning RC2, reproduced here:
Release candidate containing fixes for the majority of known
outstanding defects that we intend to fix for 2020-12 (4.18). At the
end of RC2 build, there should not be any open defects tagged 4.18.
All fixes submitted must have a project lead or PMC vote on the bug
report, and the fix must be reviewed by an additional committer (any
committer other than the one who made the fix). A positive review from
a project lead or PMC member means implicit approval and no vote is
needed on the bug report. Ongoing changes to documentation, tests or
examples do not require approval.
