Subject Qpid Improvement Process
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2011 14:42:32 GMT
Hi, everyone.

I'd like to propose a new way to communicate about the major changes going 
into our releases.  The goal is to help us make decisions early in the 
process, coordinate when a change in one place impacts another, and 
engender a broader sense of direction.  It should also help to document 
the work that we do.

To do this, I've imitated an approach that's been used in other community 
software projects.  The Python project, for instance, uses Python 
Enhancement Proposals (PEPs) to review important changes to the Python 
language [1].

I've attempted to produce something very similar here and tie it into our 
release process.  It's my hope that during the 0.10 cycle some 
contributors will opt to describe their major changes using the QIP 
process.  This is, however, entirely optional.

The attached QIP 1 and QIP template should provide an overview of how this 
might work.  This is very much in an early and unrefined form, so I 
hope you'll take a look and share your thoughts.
