  • Problems with our release process - individuals holding a token? What can be distributed better?
  • Interval between releases - is it an issue?
  • Bugs missed - we already have known issues1 with 014. Due to insufficient testing or impossible to catch them all? Bad routines?
  • Role of release manager - Developer? How many tails on the whip?
  • When is a release stable? What can be changed on a "stable" candidate? Problem has been that we have been working on a candidate so long that packages become outdated.
  • Roadmap - there hasn't been a clear roadmap for any releases, is it a problem?
  • Package selection/update process - How to choose packages/versions to include in release. How to communicate to release manager.

Roadmap 015

  • Make Base/CD/1G Flash images for snapshots. encourage greater testing.
  • Grow release, starting with Base -> Desktop -> Apps
...If there's time
Presumptive items on the 015 roadmap:
  • /System/Index
  • System management - GUI
  • Authentication and crypting data

014 Known issues
