WTP 3.0.x Maintenance Schedule
WTP 3.0.x Maintenance Schedule (DRAFT)
WTP 3.0.1 is the first WTP Ganymede maintenance offering, delivered in mid August.
WTP 3.0.2 is the coordinated fall Eclipse Ganymede maintenance offering. The WTP 3.0.2 deliverable will line up with all other Ganymede maintenance deliverables.
WTP 3.0.3 (not in plan yet) is the coordinated spring Eclipse Ganymede maintenance offering. The WTP 3.0.3 deliverable will line up with all other Ganymede maintenance deliverables.
For severe issues that require an immediate patch, see WTP Patches.
M-builds are declared weekly. Only teams with significant change in a given week (either released, affected, or accumulated) need to perform a full smoke test, and other teams can decide on the appropriate level of testing.

All WTP 3.0.x releases are service releases for critical defects, regressions, and adopter issues only. Specifically, there should be:
- No UI changes
- No NL (translation) changes
- No API changes, or changes affecting adopter usage scans
All exceptions require PMC approval.
In general, we will avoid changing the interface or behaviour of any public method as per the WTP API Policy.
All bundle versions must be updated (an increment in the service level) when the first change is made to it in a service release.
All bugs must be approved by the project lead or delegate using the bugzilla review flag. Project leads should send a note to wtp-releng to notify everyone of their choice or change in delegate(s).
Starting after RC1, all bugs must also be approved by the normal PMC Approval Process.
