Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Reference Utility Script to help automate some of RC validation in Release Process
Date Mon, 13 Aug 2018 14:05:57 GMT

I think it is fine to update the email template that is used when
sending the RC vote thread out to reference the script. What is
problematic though is that it doesn't make clear which parts it does
automate or which environments it is tested and will work in.  What we
dont want is for people to run that script and think they can or
should skip various steps.  You did well to highlight it doesn't do it
all but i think being specific about only that which it does do is
necessary.

I personally don't find the steps outlined in the RC review process
burdensome or worth automating so I will likely not be providing much
input in that regard.  But, for those that do want to leverage the
script you'll want to be really explicit about what its usage covers
precisely and in what environments it is tested and maintained.

Thanks
joe
