Kubernetes Patch Releases

Schedule and team contact information for Kubernetes patch releases.

For general information about Kubernetes release cycle, see the release process description.

Cadence

The typical patch release cadence tends to be 3 to 4 weeks. It is commonly a bit faster (1 to 2 weeks) for the earliest patch releases after a 1.X minor release. Critical bug fixes may cause a more immediate release outside of the normal cadence. We also aim to not make releases during major holiday periods.

Contact

See the Release Managers page for full contact details on the Patch Release Team.

Please give us a business day to respond - we may be in a different timezone!

In between releases the team is looking at incoming cherry-pick requests on a weekly basis. The team will get in touch with submitters via GitHub PR, SIG channels in Slack, and direct messages in Slack and email if there are questions on the PR.

Cherry-Picks

Please follow the cherry-pick process.

Cherry-picks must be merge-ready in GitHub with proper labels (eg: approved, lgtm, release note) and passing CI tests ahead of the cherry-pick deadline. This is typically two days before the target release, but may be more. Earlier PR readiness is better, as we need time to get CI signal after merging your cherry-picks ahead of the actual release.

Cherry-pick PRs which miss merge criteria will be carried over and tracked for the next patch release.
