Forum OpenACS Q&A: 3 month release cycle

13: 3 month release cycle (response to 9)
Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
An OpenACS point release every 3 months sounds very, very good to me. The exact best time period could be debated I suppose, e.g. every 4 months is probably just as good as 3, if those 3 or 4 or whatever month release targets are actually hit reliably.

Unfortunately, releasing anything isn't quite as simple as just cutting scope until the deadline is met, there's real work that needs to be done in order to make sure both that the code is ready for release, and that the grunt work of the release process itself gets done.

But I think it's a really, really good idea to try...
