This policy refers to listed components of DLTK Project version 0.95.

    • itcl Support for TCL IDE
  • Ruby IDE

Following components will continue incubation with DLTK project and will not be contributed to Ganymede:

Policy by Milestone


DLTK has it's API freeze at M7+1. Beyond M7, until DLTK 1.0.0 is released, no API changes are planned or expected for any DLTK plugins.

If some unexpected API change is required, then this will only be done after a positive vote of the DLTK committers (i.e. majority of +1, no -1).


DLTK will have it's feature freeze at RC1+1 (May 19). This will mean no new/additional user-visible features will be planned or expected to be introduced beyond this point.

If a user-visible feature change must occur to address a major or critical bug, the fix will only be applied after the project lead and 3 other committers have agreed to and then separately tested the fix.

RC2 to Release

Primary activity will be in testing, reporting, and addressing major or higher bugs. Documentation additions and changes can and will continue until 3 days before Ganymede Release (June 22).
