The next community release of Gluster is 3.13, which is a short term
maintenance release is slated for release on 30th Nov  . Thus
giving a 2 month head room to get to 4.0 work done, while maintaining
the cadence of releasing every 3 months.
This mail is to announce the scope, schedule and request contributors
for the features that will make it to 3.13.
3.13 is expected to be *lean* in scope, as most work is expected to be
around 4.0 in the coming months. This STM can be considered as a sneak
peek for some 4.0 features, that will *not* break any compatibility in
the 3.x release line.
2) The release calendar looks as follows,
- Feature proposal end date: Sep-22-2017
- Branching: Oct-16-2017
- Release: Nov-30-2017
- Feature proposal:
- Contributors need to request for features that will be a part of
the 3.13 release, sending a mail to the devel list, and including the
github issue # for the feature
- Branching: date by when declared features (appearing in the release
lane, in the github project board ) need to be completed, incomplete
or features that are not ready by the branching date, would be pushed
out to the next release.
