Subject Metron Release 0.6.1 and/or Plugin release 0.3.0?
Date Tue, 16 Oct 2018 16:26:32 GMT
Hi all,

As you might recall from a prior discussion about release cadence, we were
interested in initiating release threads near our board reports to see if
we wanted to do releases or not. Additionally, the work is done to do two
separate releases, so our options are releasing both, a single one, or

Having said that, a metron-bro-kafka-plugin 0.3.0 release came up on this
In particular, the prospect of a release came up in the context of having a
version with better (and working) testing.

Version Number
If we choose to do a core Metron release, I propose 0.6.1. For
metron-bro-kafka-plugin, I propose 0.3.0.  Keep in mind, the versioning for
the plugin is a bit different in that we need x.y for bro-pkg, instead of
x.y.z, so we wouldn't release 0.2.1.

I would personally be in favor of doing a plugin release, but I'm less
inclined to do a core Metron release.

For Metron, I believe the main feature is the batch profiler work, but
there's a fair amount of fixes and improvements.

For the plugin, I believe the main improvements would be around the fixing
our testing and more maintenance type work.

JIRA status
There are 24 opens PRs at  If we do
decide to release, we should work on getting anything meriting inclusion
closed out.

There have been 49 commits since the 0.6.0 release (listed at the end of
the message). This assumes a release from master.

There are 6 open PRs at  If we do decide
to release, we should get anything we need closed out.

There have been 2 commits since the 0.2.0 release (listed at the end of the
message).  This assumes a release from master.
