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.

Jedbro, the trunk (as opposed to the 0.9.2 branch) is no longer under the additional driver approval guidelines. It is our hope that folks will use care and work to maintain the stability we've gained in the last couple milestones. There are lots of bugs which can only be fixed with major changes. We hope that these changes will be well tested (on experimental branches with binaries provided to the QA community for testing prior to landing) and well reviewed. We don't expect the kinds of major wholesale rewrites like we saw in 0.8 and 0.9 cycles so we should be able to get some good bugfixes in and react quicly to any regressions or destabilization.
