We have said that major releases will be on a 6 month schedule. Major releases may include new and updated packages, while minor releases will contain bug fixes and fixes for packaging problems.
First major release, 2009.2.x
Schedule for minor releases:
2009.2.0, Monday 4th May (actual release slipped by one day) Freeze for package changes for 2009.2.0.1: Monday 18th May 2009.2.0.1, Monday 1st June (4 weeks after .0) 2009.2.0.2 delayed for 6.10.4 (releasd: Jul 16) Freeze for package changes to 2009.2.0.2: Wednesday July 22 2009.2.0.2, Wednesday July 29 (8 weeks after .1, originally planned for July 13, delayed due to GHC 6.10.4)
Second major release: 2009.4.x
A 4 month schedule for the second major release puts us in September.
- Determine number of packages to add
- Determine decision model for packages
- Add new packages and test
- Freeze for 2009.4.0.0
- Release for 2009.4.0.0
This remains to be decided. We first have to decide if we want a 6 month cycle, or if we would do better with a 4 month cycle initially.
