2. Feature requests for Georgetown Release

3. Release timing of TWiki 4.3 release

  • Desired outcome: Decide on target dates

  • 2009-02-23 - code freeze
  • 2009-03-02 - string freeze
  • 2009-03-02 - rc1

  • Peter to ask Markus if he'd like to help out to coordinate translations - TranslationSupport

4. Review release management process

  • Goal is to make it easier and quicker to accept feature proposals for instant gratification, while keeping risk low of pushing feature through that is not aligned with mission
  • Discussed Peter's idea posted at bottom of TWikiReleaseManagementProcess: May be require x% of active contributors to vote on a feature. Such as: "A vote on a feature can be done at a release meeting if 33% of active core contributors vote, either at the release meeting or online in the feature proposal topic ahead of release meeting. An active core contributor is defined as a person who made at least 3 check-ins within 2 month to the core or core extensions."
  • Feedback: Consider also non-coders, e.g. people contributing on Codev, TWiki, Plugins and Support webs
