Release Plan

General tasks for a release

  • We have many open bugs in Jira. These should be reviewed and resolved (fixed, or declared invalid etc) before a release, as much as possible.
  • Documentation updates (this area lacks most). Documentation must be happening all the time, and not left until last.
  • Checking what components to promote from scratchpad into the mainstream code line.
  • Checking what blocks to promote to stable status.
  • Ensure that licensing requirements have been met. update jars.xml, ensure proper banner in *.java header, verify the current LICENSE* files, ensure that external components have suitable licensing requirements.
  • Everything we forgot...
