Discussion Topics

  • Currently we do use 'pwebster/start_421' for 4.2.1 development
  • Once 4.2 has been declared we will use the 'master' branch for 4.2.1 development for the next two months
  • We can create a branch for 4.3 if anyone has a need to do major feature work before 4.2.1 ships, but will hold off for now.
  • Everyone should be looking at their 4.2.1 bugs and ensure it is a reasonable workload
    • Keep in mind 4.2.1 is a short development cycle of roughly 10 weeks
    • Any item of work that can't be completed by end of August shouldn't be done in 4.2.1
    • As with all maintenance releases, API is not a focus for 4.2.1
