:ear_of_rice: Release

  • Having ‘pre-release’ candidates (like Ubuntu), instead of having the main branch mostly would give people more confidence to try out the branch for flight testing - @mcsauder
  • Alpha/Beta/RC1, 2, 3, …
  • Having clear intermediate releases, it puts :fire: under people and gives a sense of timespan & can help people devote more resources into testing.

How do we track the testing (bench & flight) of the releases? - Daniel

  • We need a tool / (discuss forum) to report testings on a specific releases
