Minutes of Edinburgh Release Meeting, 30 Oct 2006

TOC and Agenda

Logistics, Participants, IRC log

1. Review Previous Action Items

  • Peter and Kenneth to provide feedback for Sam on PostDakarTrackingAndDiscussion
    • No actions due to other priorities. Actions items remain open.
  • Kenneth to make short description of the requirements for the script to create the zips with only the changed files.
    • The 4.0.5 only added 5 new files so it was not urgent and people kept me busy. Action item kept open.
  • Kwang will use the above and make a stab on making the script.
    • Dependency on previous one, so remains open as well
  • Steffen - review the proposed change in NeedSpecForFormValueInitialization for implications to TWiki Apps. And if he finds it safe it is accepted.
    • Done and accepted.
  • Kenneth - build beta of 4.1
    • The code suddenly became very unstable to Kenneth postponed it.

2. Review Proposed Features of TWiki 4.1

  • Desired outcome: Clarify open question and decide on inclusion/exclusion of features

  • Current status can be seen in WhatIsIn04x01.
  • It was decided to deprecate the SupportFormsForSettingPreferences from 4.1. This means that eventually the code will be removed but in 4.1 and at least a year forward the deprecations means that
    • The release note announce the feature deprecated.
    • The code will have comments noting the deprecation.
  • AddSectionParam was accepted by 6 votes for and 0 against. The feature covers the view script only. ?section=somename will not have any effect on edit. This is for the already existing plugins to handle. Harald takes task of driving the code implementation together with Arthur.

3. TWiki 4.1 Release Timing

  • Desired outcome: Set tentative date of TWiki 4.1 Release

Decisions.

  • Feature freeze starting from 30 Oct 2006 (NOW at release meeting)
  • Add the feature freeze text to WhatIsIn04x01 (Kenneth does)
  • New ideas to TWikiFeature04x02 (Kenneth creates this topic)
  • The 14 day auto accept rule is suspended until 4.1 is released to give focus on bug fixing.
  • Code freeze about one week after beta - then only bug fixes allowed
  • RC1 2 weeks after beta

Action Items

  • Peter and Kenneth to provide feedback for Sam on PostDakarTrackingAndDiscussion
  • Kenneth to make short description of the requirements for the script to create the zips with only the changed files.
  • Kwang will use the above and make a stab on making the script.
  • DONE Arthur: Create the TWikiReleaseNotes04x01
  • DONE Arthur: Add note about deprecation of settings in form fields to release notes TWikiReleaseNotes04x01
    • Note that we already took the documentation of the "S" attribute out of TWikiForms for Dakar. I honestly think this feature has been deprecated already before Dakar, and now is the time to finally give it the death stroke. TW
    • Bugs:Item2302 is the living proof that we did not announce the deprecation of the feature to our users. So the decision taken today was to deprecate by the book. First announce. And after say one year remove the code in a major or minor release. Never in patch release. Thanks for actioning the comment adding so fast. KJL
  • DONE Thomas. Add note about deprecation of settings in form fields to release notes in the code.
  • Kenneth builds a quick and non-unit-test-passing beta to get testing started outside pseudo-install.
    • Status per 06 Nov 2006. Beta cannot be released because of Bugs:Item3098 which is a security issue.
  • DONE Kenneth: Add the feature freeze text to WhatIsIn04x01
  • DONE Kenneth: New ideas to TWikiFeature04x02 (14 day rule suspended)
  • DONE Kenneth: Announce the feature freeze and suspension of 14 day rule on twiki-dev
