At this point we should have release candidates (RC1 or recent intermediary
release) for all the Wallaby deliverables. Teams should be working on any
release-critical bugs that would require another RC or intermediary release
before the final release.
Early in the week, the release team will be proposing stable/wallaby branch
creation for all deliverables that have not branched yet, using the latest
available Wallaby release as the branch point. If your team is ready to go
for creating that branch, please let us know by leaving a +1 on these
If you would like to wait for another release before branching, you can -1
the patch and update it later in the week with the new release you would
like to use. By the end of the week the release team will merge those
patches though, unless an exception is granted.
Once stable/wallaby branches are created, if a release-critical bug is
detected, you will need to fix the issue in the master branch first, then
backport the fix to the stable/wallaby branch before releasing out of the
After all of the cycle-with-rc projects have branched we will branch
devstack, grenade, and the requirements repos. This will effectively open
them up for Xena development, though the focus should still be on
finishing up Wallaby until the final release.
For projects with translations, watch for any translation patches coming
through and merge them quickly. A new release should be produced so that
translations are included in the final Wallaby release.
Finally, now is a good time to finalize release notes. In particular,
consider adding any relevant "prelude" content. Release notes are
targetted for the downstream consumers of your project, so it would be
great to include any useful information for those that are going to pick
up and use or deploy the Wallaby version of your project.
