Development Focus

At this point we should have release candidates (RC1 or recent intermediary
release) for all the Yoga 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/yoga branch
creation for all deliverables that have not branched yet, using the latest
available Yoga 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/yoga 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/yoga branch before releasing out of the
stable/yoga branch.

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 Zed development, though the focus should still be on
finishing up Yoga 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 Yoga release.

Finally, now is a good time to finalize release notes, if it is not done 
yet. In particular,
consider adding any relevant "prelude" content. Release notes are
targeted 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 Yoga version of your project.
