Re: The new release process

These kinds of things happen all the time, someone sees the tag and bam, there is a new release! And you know what? They are right! Having a final tag means it's released, period. If it's still not released a sane versioning system should use RC tags, but I've already repeated this way too often, s...

Re: The new release process

* We don't tag for RCs. That would require to replace the tag later After that, the release tag is created which marks the beginning of the actual release process. The packagers build their RCs and link them to the release thread, testers start to look for problems with the installers -- but also f...

Re: Release process changes

On a good day, it is that simple. :lol: I've been surprised by launchpad before, right before a release, their build machines going down, acting wonky or worse. I can understand, that's why I have my own build servers. Anyway if one of the packages misses the release date by a few hours or if you h...

Re: Release process changes

Anyway guys don't misunderstand me: you should go with whatever route you prefer. I firmly believe that whoever does the work should take the decisions. I simply wanted to let you understand that you should not fight your users, you should teach them and exploit their potential. They are no harm if ...

Re: Release process changes

Just got into the office... anyway, my rational behind having a private PPA is that the end result (non-RC, but final version) can be put there, hence the name staging. Since I have better things to do with my time than wait for an OpenMW release (really, house renovations, 4 children and work), I ...

Re: Release process changes

It might not be of any use to this discussion, but another open-source project whose primary user group is gamers and handles things pretty well is Dolphin Emulator. While their releases are few and far between, and users are recommended to use development builds, there's never really an issue of b...

Re: Release process changes

How does it address the resulting visitors to our site wondering why they were told elsewhere that we are released, when we are not actually released? Let me think, the RC1 after 0.41? There is not even a single open source project having such a problem with proper naming convenctions , or maybe yo...
