Enhancement Description

  • One-line enhancement description (can be used as a release note): The Kubernetes support window has been released to one year, or four releases. This is a change from nine months, or three releases.
  • Kubernetes Enhancement Proposal: (link to kubernetes/enhancements file, if none yet, link to PR) Add Kubernetes Yearly Support Period KEP #1497
  • Primary contact (assignee): @youngnick
  • Responsible SIGs: wg-lts
  • Enhancement target (which target equals to which milestone):
    • Stable release target (1.181.19)

This KEP and proposal involve increasing the support window from three releases to four, as recommended by WG-LTS. This is an effort that will span a lot of SIGs, with SIG-Architecture, SIG-Release, and SIG-Testing being the most impacted.

It does not require code changes, and is a process change.

@youngnick -- We'll need to open this for discussion across mailing lists AND achieve consensus on this across all of the stakeholder SIGs and I do not see that happening by Enhancements Freeze or 1.18.

See the Slack convo happening here: https://kubernetes.slack.com/archives/C2C40FMNF/p1579736459090100

-1 for targeting 1.18. See my comment here: #1497 (review)

[noting that enhancements freeze is tuesday, review + buy-in from affected sigs (... all of them?) does seem unlikely by then 😅 ]

Issues go stale after 90d of inactivity.
Mark the issue as fresh with /remove-lifecycle stale.
Stale issues rot after an additional 30d of inactivity and eventually close.

If this issue is safe to close now please do so with /close.

Send feedback to sig-testing, kubernetes/test-infra and/or fejta.

Hi @youngnick - I am Savitha,1.19 Docs lead. Does this enhancement work planned for 1.19 require any new docs (or modifications to existing docs)? If not, can you please update the 1.19 Enhancement Tracker Sheet, or let me know, I can do it for you :)
If docs are required, just a friendly reminder that we are looking for a PR against k/website (branch dev-1.19) due by Friday, June 12, it can just be a placeholder PR at this time. Let me know if you have any questions!

It will need some modifications to the docs about support windows at least, so I'll say yes. @tpepper may have more here.

I'll work on sorting out the docs PR as soon as I can.

Hi @youngnick, Just a reminder that docs placeholder PR against dev-1.19 is due by June 12th. Once you have it in place, can you update this issue with a link to the PR?

If you already have a placeholder PR against dev-1.19 branch, please provide the link here. Thanks!

Does this apply to major version or minor versions ?

Does this apply to major version or minor versions ?

We're talking about the delivery of patch versions for minor versions. Across this discussion the major version has always been only "1", which may make things confusing. If/when someday the major version moves to "2", we will have to decide as a project if we keep some patching happening on a 1.X branch also.

tpepper commented Jun 11, 2020

@savitharaghunathan we've been discussing multiple points of potential docs updates and will get hopefully a non-placeholder but rather initial actual Docs PR open on this at the beginning of next week, based on the understanding from the Jun 8, 2020 release 1.19 team meeting intent to shift the coming deadlines out a week or so.

Hi @tpepper @youngnick !

Enhancements Lead here. Can you confirm that this was stable in 1.19? If so can you please update the KEP's status to implemented and close this issue once that merges?

Thanks!
Kirsten
