Full Article Attached 0.9.2 Branch and Beyond

Sunday June 24th, 2001

Chris Blizzard has posted an update on current tree management plans for the 0.9.2 branch and the 0.9.3 trunk. The plan calls for mozilla.org to drop the requirement of drivers@mozilla.org approval for check ins to the trunk, while continuing it till 0.9.2 is finished on the branch. Chris felt that using 0.9.2 as a stability milestone was a success, partly thanks to the drivers requirement, but mostly due to better self policing by those who were checking in.

When 0.9.2 is completed on the branch, Netscape will take over control of it, and continue checking into it for an upcoming release. The build Netscape chooses to release will also be released by mozilla.org as 0.9.2.1.

Finally, Chris stressed the importance of continued self policing, to keep up the high level of stability that the past 2 weeks have achieved. To read his entire post, click the Full Article link.

Just curious, it seems like mangelo was at least correct in his assessment of targetted 0.9.2 bugs (looks like there are about 170 bugs as of Monday night). What's the reason for branching with a comparatively large number of bugs (if it even is large compared to previous releases)? Does it even have any consequence other than that it might take a few extra days to close that many bugs? I assume that all the bugs targetted for 0.9.2 will get closed before release or get retargetted.

Anyway, mangelo generally gets thing wrong, but I thought I'd see he had actually noticed something noteworthy in his observation that the branching is happening relatively early.
