So, all ppl with commit bit seem to not have time applying bug fixes/making releases. So why not add someone as release manager to the team, who would be able to apply bug fixes and prepare a new release? I would propose Markus Prinz (31 commits) or Chris Schneider (10 commits), if they would be OK with that.
This sounds fair. Also, Rack has not been getting needed attention, which also effects Sinatra.
Agreed, but at the moment it seems easier to get a patch into Rack than to get a patch into Sinatra. At least for Rack you can find someone on IRC to bug about it. But they have the same release-preparing issues.
Yeah, I don't have a lot of time, but I've been considering asking Chris to let me do the release engineering for the next release. (of rack)
I'd be happy to be a wrangler of Sinatra patches & website if people want me to. Or to just consult with raggi or somebody else to help out where possible.
+1 on the Request.
+1 from me as well. More people helping with releases would be good.
I'm right now working on a branch with all bug fix patches that are still in the pipe.
branch with bug fixes + change log
I'd be very happy to have rkh, cschneid, or cypher manage releases. The branch rkh put together looks good for a 1.1.
I would be happy taking care of it in case cypher / cschneid have not already grown too attached to the commit bit. I would also step back from it as long as someone is there accepting bug fixes.
+1 for rkh getting the commit bit. He's more up to speed with the Sinatra issues/patchfixes right now.
Sounds like everybody is behind rkh, that sounds great to me.
I'll be hanging around #sinatra, and will be available to help / offload work to.
Lets get Sinatra 1.0.1 or 1.1 or whatever out.
I'm mostly lurking around ATM, but I can lend an extra hand if needed as well.
cschneid: according to semver 1.1 would be next (added features without breaking compatibility).
Any updates on this? There are many patches building up which need to be applied, especially for 1.9.2. Surely someone is around to do this or at least add someone willing to do so to the core team.
Branch is already put together (see pull request above). I think feedback from at least Blake is missing, but Ryan said he'll talk to him.
Updates? Any news?
Blake is currently in Dublin, so probably no update till at least next week.
Note that I will be on vacation in UK from 09/28 to 10/10. I will neither have a computer nor an internet connection.
I'm sorry this took so long! http://groups.google.com/group/sinatrarb/browse_thread/thread/e2667e5a266f957f
Awesome, no worries!
