Hi Dev,

I think Emmanuel's question is very interesting and deserves to be voted on the ML.

Time to vote:
[ ] +1 We should release RC versions first, prior to releasing a major update.
[ ] +/-0 Abstain
[ ] -1 We should not release RC versions first, but the final version (and, eventually, release a service update very quickly if some important bugs are discovered)

I'm not really against this idea... Even though it will delay the release of the real 1.1, it will probably prevent us from having to release a 1.1.1 a few days after the 1.1 release.

+1, Let's release this beast as soon as possible then... :)

Hi guys,

I'm just wondering if it would not be a good idea to release a RC for
the release to come ? It will help to find small bugs we can have, as
it's a GUI and as so, not easy to test.

I'm afraid that we may have some regressions, and having to deliver a
1.1.1 a few days later can be a little bit counter-productive, when a RC
with failure is acceptable.

wdyt ?
