This document describes the process used by the p2 team to contribute bug fixes to a maintenance stream.

  • Create a new bug as clone of the original one
  • Set the target milestone
  • Get consent from component lead (this can happen before or while the patch is written)
  • Attach the patch (note that the patch in the maintenance stream does not have to be the same one than in HEAD). It is also a good practice to have released in HEAD the changes before putting it in the M build.
  • Get patch reviewed
  • Release patch
  • Tag (or get someone to tag)
