Note: these (and our plan dates) are on 'Friday' of the week. But, we produce and test the build on Thursday of the week, and ideally declare on Thursday. The dates in the Google Web Tools group calendar are for 'Thursdays' since that's a calendar for committers. We give ourselves the buffer to Friday, as our "public" date, that others can pick up our build, just in case a regression is found on Thursday and we have to respin and retest. [Technically, some might say, we still have till the following Tuesday or Wednesday for "Simultaneous Release" due date ... but it's hard to do much in that window, without disrupting everyone ... so we'd not use that buffer, except for the worst emergencies.]
- Plan to remove "contributors page". There's been no objections and no volunteers to maintain it.
- Bug 295000 - Committers page is inaccurate and not maintained
- Ok to remove unused performance bundles? See bug 295202.
- Have heard from all but a few teams.
- heads up for unit test changes to allow tests that depend on JUnit 4. Educate yourself, but no mass updates recommended at this time. See bug 153429.
