It seems like a great writeup to me. The
only thing unclear was a bit on your versioning. You might add a page/paragraph
titled "Versioning: History and Plans" just to clarify, to those
casually reading (like I was). Here's what I found confusing:
You had a 0.7 release, while still incubating,
But you are now jumping to "2.0"?
(I'm sure you have reasons for skipping "1.0", but you should
explain/justify that explicitly).
In some of your charts, such as for
bug rates, you refer to "0.8" such as for M7, recently in 2011
... so ... have you switched to "2.0", or not? Hopefully you
already have, as you built final milestones and RCs .. or, harder for adopters
to adjust to last minute, major version changes.
As you explain, be sure to explain both
feature and bundle versions, and what "rules" you are following
(e.g. maybe for now, just initially, you are keeping them all in synch?)
And, to be explicit, you might confirm
"that from now on" you'll following the stricter versioning rules
as codified in
Apologies in advance if any of this
is obvious or "in there" in the document somewhere and I just
missed it. But otherwise hope you find the comments helpful.
Thanks so much for providing early and
allowing a chance for feedback. Overall, a very good release document.
