Cosmos Release Plan
COSMOS 1.1 Release Plan
Please send comments about this plan to the email@example.com project management mailing list.
This document lays out the feature and API set for the COSMOS releases.
This plan describes the deliverables, milestones, and plan items for the COSMOS project. Each plan item covers a feature or API that is to be added to COSMOS, or some aspect of COSMOS that is to be improved. Each plan item has its own entry in the COSMOS bugzilla database, with a title and a concise summary (usually a single paragraph) that explains the work item at a suitably high level so that everyone can readily understand the work item.
Fixing bugs, improving test coverage, documentation, examples, performance tuning, usability, etc. are considered routine ongoing maintenance activities and are not included in this plan unless they would also involve a significant change to the API or feature set, or involve a significant amount of work. The intent of the plan is to account for all interesting feature work.
The following release deliverables are provided:
- Component Tests
- Data Collection Implementation
- Data Visualization Implementation
- Resource Modeling Implementation
- Management Enablement Implementation
- CMDBf Implementation
This COSMOS 1.1 is targeted for general availability on 25-September-2009. All deliverables will be available for download as soon as the release has been tested and validated in the target configurations. There is an allocation of resource to defect removal in all iterations. The first Iterations 1-2 will contain the bulk of the enhancement work, with Iteration 3 stabilizing the milestone driver, with Iterations 4, 5 and 6 will be devoted to fleshing out the framework, and Iteration 7 will mainly be used to stabilize and shut down the release. There is a one week buffer after I7 to the GA date in order to plan and prep for the release review.
