From the sidelines it seems that there is a confusion on what the %

others think that 100% means "It's been tested, the final builds are in
and all known and cared about bugs are fixed".
My understanding was the later. All working tested and ready to go.
What is it meant to mean.
Yeah, I think this is sort of an issue with pushing everything down
to a simple number.

In my view, '100%' would mean "I'm done with this, and not touching
it modulo bugs." It can have a lower percentage and still be testable.


So really, we need 2 things.

1) a definition of a status that the feature wrangler and FESCo agree
upon to be "done enough" for Alpha / Feature Freeze.

2) a % number that indicates #1

All we need to do to fix #1 is clarify the policy which the Feature Wrangler seeks to follow and help administer. It has always been a percentage to measure the completeness of implementing the feature as described on the feature page.

We seek to been feature complete (100%) or "testable" (no percentage defined in the current policy--this would address #2) at Feature Freeze so those features can be tested in the test releases (Alpha & Beta).
