Maintenance of Eight

The current focus of development is 0.9.0 ("Nine") represented by the master branch in the git repository. Until that release is made, there could be some problems found with the current stable version, which is on the eight branch.

There are two major cases that affect how the maintenance takes place:

  1. a bugfix or a new feature affects both Eight and Nine
  2. a bugfix or a new feature is not relevant for Nine any more

In the first case, the change must be first submitted against master and, after it is accepted, backported/adapted to eight.

In the second case, the change can be submitted directly to eight for inclusion. There are two known areas where submission for Nine is not necessary:

  • WebStatus modifications
  • master-side support for old-style source steps

(Please check release notes for the version in development)
