DTP Ganymede Milestone Sign-off Policy

Status

[12/7/07]: This document is a draft and has not been approved by the DTP PMC.

Introduction

As both an Eclipse project and a member of coordinated releases (Callisto, Europa, Ganymede), it is imperative that DTP milestones, release candidates (RC), and releases are of acceptable quality.

Process

  • For each DTP milestone, RC and release date, the PMC will determine a "candidate build" date on which the associated DTP build will be taken as the testing target.
  • For each DTP milestone, RC and release date, the PMC will determine a sign-off close date and publish it to the dtp-pmc mailing list.
  • Each DTP project lead should work with their teams to test the DTP candidate build.
  • By the sign-off close date, each DTP project lead will send an email to dtp-pmc expressing one of the following sign-off options:
    • Accepted: "In the project lead's best judgement, their project components are ready for the milestone/RC/release."
    • Accepted, with reservations: "In the project lead's best judgement, their project components are ready for the milestone/RC/release, with the following reservations." Next, a list of Bugzilla entries specific to that project, which the project lead would ideally like to see resolved, but not enough strictly to postpone the milestone/RC/release completion.
    • Declined: "In the project lead's best judgement, their project components are not ready for the milestone/RC/release." Next, a list of Bugzilla entries specific to that project, which the project lead believes must be resolved before milestone/RC/release completion.
