Stop Ship Request Template

When requesting approval to check in a fix when COSMOS is in stop-ship mode, post your request to the project's mailing list with answers to the following questions:

  1. Explain why you believe this is a stop-ship defect. How does the defect manifest itself, and how will users of COSMOS / consuming products be affected if the defect is not fixed?
  2. Is there a work-around? If so, why do you believe the work-around is insufficient?
  3. Is this a regression or API breakage? Explain.
  4. Does this require new API?
  5. Who performed the code review?
  6. Is there a test case attached to the bugzilla record?
  7. What is the risk associated with this fix?
  8. Is this fix related to any standards that COSMOS adheres to? If so, who has validated that the fix continues to adhere to the standard?
