Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Next Release (0.3.1) Content
Date Fri, 27 Jan 2017 03:50:19 GMT
I haven't had a chance to look through the unresolved JIRAs but I did want
to mention a few quick things.

First, when we released 0.3.0 and dropped the BETA flag, one of the things
that was discussed was putting together a method of documenting upgrades
from one version to the next.  As one of the first steps toward making that
a reasonable process, I think we should assemble more detailed release
notes, especially outlining non-backwards compatible changes.  In the
"[DISCUSS] Next Release Name" email thread Kyle Richardson suggested we use
"" to do this, and I still agree with that thought, but I'm
open to alternatives.

Separately, a *nice to have* would be *METRON-660*, which was discussed in
the "[PROPOSAL] up-to-date versioned documentation" thread, to give us some
cleaner documentation using the existing READMEs.  I'd be happy to help
with this one, I'm just not sure what the next steps are, aside from the
start that Matt has here

My last *nice to have* is *METRON-635*, which I have a *PR open for here
<>*.  If I could get
someone else to reproduce the error that I'm seeing I would be happy to
pursue additional testing, troubleshooting, etc.  I've seen others report
the same issue
on the HCC boards, so I'm fairly confident that it is not an issue with my
local environment.

I took the liberty of adding the pull requests since the new year into the
in-progress list in the previous email.  If you own one of these and do not
believe that you can complete the review in the next week or so, let me
know and we can remove.  The only one of these that I see as mandatory is
METRON-650 because the reliance on the opensoc github repo might cause
issues with the release being acceptable (see discussion by Mike Miklavcic
with the mentors a couple weeks ago).
