Minutes of TWiki Kampala Release Meeting, 2015-12-03

Logistics, Participants, IRC log

1. Feature Requests for Kampala Release

  • (skipped)

2. Extensions

  • Desired outcome: Get everyone in sync, coordinate enhancements
  • See WebChanges in Plugins web

  • RedirectPlugin:
    • PTh fixed it based on patch discovered in the support web by Joshua Tharp

  • CgiContrib:
    • Fixed packaging issue, was needed for TWiki-6.0.2 release

3. Review Urgent and Not So Urgent Bugs

  • TWikibug:Item7699: Default configuration is not shown in configure script; apache error log shows: unquoted string "useful"
    • PTh discovered this bug while sanity testing the TWiki-6.0.2 release; was too late to put into the release, but now fixed and packaged

4. TWiki-6.0.2 Release Post-Mortem

  • Desired outcome: Identify improvements for release process

  • We had a successful release thanks to Hideyo-san and PTh

  • Issue:
    • Building release package is time consuming mainly due to failed tests

  • To do:
    • Close all patch items marked as "waiting for release" for 6.0.2 -- Hideyo-san
    • Re-build the windows personal edition with 6.0.2 -- Harald
    • Announce on Wikimatrix and SourceForge.net -- PTh (already announced on mailing lists, twiki.org blog, twitter, Facebook group and page, LinkedIn group and page)
    • Build TWiki-VM -- PTh
      • Will try selling the new VM as a "convenience package" (see details in log)

  • Process improvement:
    • Introduce automated tests with test result reports:
    • Possibly automate build, e.g. run script with parameters (release version number, etc) to build the .zip, .tgz, .md5
      • Same script could be used for nightly builds
      • Script would updated the release notes with "waiting for release" bug items, and with release build number

5. Miscellaneous

  • (none)
