Re: [microprofile-wg] Service Release require a Release Review

Hi Wayne,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I will take this to the Steering Committee in order to update our release processes and make sure we will have the necessary paperwork set up for subsequent releases.

Kind regards,

Edwin Derks

I saw a posting on the Google Group earlier today about a MicroProfile 4.0.1 release.

AFAICT, the "release" is nothing more than setting the scope of the component specifications in the pom.xml file. I defer to the wisdom of the MicroProfile Steering Committee to determine whether or not such a change rises to the level of a "service release", "bug fix", or clarification (I'm thinking that it does not). So, IMHO, nothing that I'm going to write below impacts this MicroProfile 4.0.1 release (again, I defer to the wisdom of the Steering Committee if they have a different opinion).

I will use this opportunity to ensure that the MicroProfile Steering Committee and community are aware that, per the Eclipse Foundation Specification Process, service releases require a release review (which includes a ballot from the Steering Committee). 

The main difference, according to the specification process, between a major/minor release and a service release, is that a service release only requires the release review. A major/minor release also requires a plan review at the beginning of each development cycle, and--in the event that more than one year passes between the successful completion of a plan review and the release--a progress review.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Note that you can open and discuss issues against the process itself on the EFSP GitHub repository.
