Jump to: navigation, search

The various functional groups of OpenOffice.org (Quality Assurance, Development, User Experience, Documentation, Release Engineering, Marketing, Localization, etc.) are represented here. On every Monday 3pm German time (see here to convert to other time zones) this meeting will track the status and the detailed schedule of deliveries for the upcoming releases.

The members of this meeting review critical issues and deliverables for the releases and agree on the appropriate handling of those issues. They coordinate the actual release schedule.

Issue queries and release schedule

2011-05-09

Participants: Martin Hollmichel, Pavel Janik, Fridrich Strba, ...


3.4 Status

  • Beta release is out and available.
  • 3.4 issue status (amount of regressions and 3.4 targets have been decreased but still too high) so probably next build will be delayed by one week.
  • integration of l10n is still ongoing.

3.4 Status

  • Beta release is out and available.
  • 3.4 issue status (amount of regressions and 3.4 targets still too high) so probably next build will not yet a rc.

2011-04-11

Participants: Kai Ahrens, Stefan Baltzer, Rafaella Braconi, Oliver Craemer, Martin Damboldt, Helge Delfs, Olaf Felka, Pavel Janik, Kami, Marcus Lange, Marc Neumann, Fridrich Štrba

3.4 Status

  • DEV300m106 was used for the branch off. Now the development for the 3.4 release will go on with the new OOO340 codeline.
  • The announcement for OOo 3.4 Beta is prepared as draft.
  • The Beta release is scheduled for tomorrow.
  • The 3.4 is in good shape but still there are a couple of issues open that need to be fixed before the final release.
  • Nearly all issues that were suggested for a possible OOo 3.3.1 are already fixed in the upcoming 3.4 Beta release.
  • Please raise stopper candidates as usual on the releases mailing list. BUT only in case they don't already match the release criteria - e.g. being a regression, data loss, etc. which would obviously need to be fixed on 3.4 target.
  • To calm the OOO340 code line down a little, we will switch to longer milestone cycles on the way to the 3.4 release. For now these will be three week cycles as already mentioned at http://blogs.sun.com/ratte/entry/some_changes_for_the_openoffice. So in case you are addressing further 3.4 issues and you are eager to get early feedback from submitter of an issue or whom ever, please use the established and well known methods like qa-upload (FTP) to provide separate CWSs / patches for early feedback on fixes.

3.4 Status

  • We still have a bit too many open issue that are release relevant, but the decreasing trend is clearly visible:

Other items

  • The listed issues for a 3.3.1 review are mostly fixed, only 2 are open. The respective CWSs will be integrated into one of the next DEV300 milestones. So it's a good idea to take the next builds for testing these issues.

3.4 Status

  • Regarding the release schedule today would be the branch off day. As the number of release relevant issues is too high we have to shift this date to March, 28th.
  • We will see end of March if we need another Alpha version.
  • A couple of issues have been raised as candidates for a bugfix release. It was not yet possible to gather all needed data for today's meeting (complexity, efforts, risks of regressions, backporting, etc.). So, we will about them next Monday.

3.3 Status

  • For the OOo 3.3.0 release we have now 70 languages online with >900 files. This is the biggest release ever.

3.3 Review

  • Marcus reported that since the OOo 3.3 release from January, 26th we now have 29 languages with released files.
  • Rafaella explained the detailed plan how to go on with the remaining files:
    • NL teams that haven't released install builds will be included in the automatic process.
    • NL teams that have released all or partly builds will be left-out.
    • A separate Wiki page with more information will be created and linked on the download webpage.

3.4 Status

  • The branch off date for OOo 3.4 was originally scheduled for today but as the release criteria aren't fulfilled yet the branch off had to be deferred until March 7th.
  • Therefore we will release a Alpha version which is planned with developer snapshot DEV300m101 next week.
  • Milestone DEV300m101 or DEV300m102 (depends on RE and amount of conflicts) will be the last with feature integrations, after this the branch off will take place.

3.3 Status

  • Marcus reported that since the OOo 3.3 release from January, 26th we have 24 languages with 278 files in "released" status, tomorrow additionally Vietnamese with 14 files.
  • Compared with the 3.2.1 release (29 languages with 294 files) this is again a satisfying release.
  • Deadline for further releases from the the NLC is February, 10th.
  • However, there are still ~700 files in RC status, how to get the remaining files released as stable for download?
  • Rafaella suggests to test the files automatically if the builds install.
  • As there was a general agreement in the chat, she will post a proposal on the l10n and qa mailing lists.
