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 to reiterate one more time, just in case :-)

0.9.2 was shortened by two weeks. The people who triaged bugs for 0.9.2 at the begining of the cycle didn't expect two less weeks to fix them. This resulted in 280 bugs at the time of branching, but as Blake and Hixie noted in probably the most passionate argument ever in #mozillazine, the number of "bugs blocking 0.9.2" was only of 14. (they have "critical for 0.9.2" in the status whiteboard). Would the milestone be less buggy if we pushed all the 0.9.2 bugs to 0.9.3? Of course not, but M. Angelo would have said "this will probably be a very good milestone because there are only two bugs targetted at 0.9.2 at the time of branching".

This is nonsense and should be condemned.

Fabian.
