Re: Updated Fedora 12 Schedule (take 2)

Hi John,

(Cc-ing fedora-devel-list, surprised to see the schedule hasn't been
posted there)

It was approved by FESCo in May https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/143 and should have appeared on fedora-devel as part of the meeting recap.

The schedules below are detailed schedules for a specific team. There were no changes to the major milestones originally approved: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/12/Schedule

In the F-11 schedule, we had 85 days between Feature Freeze and GA. And
then GA slipped by two weeks.
In the F-12 schedule, we now have 99 days between Feature Freeze and GA.

For Fedora 12 An extra week was added to accommodate Linux plumbers conference, etc...https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/1271

In addition there are four weeks in the Fedora 12 schedule for Alpha (previously known as Beta) versus the three weeks in Fedora 11--this was an oversight in the setting of the Fedora 11 schedule which did not allow for three weekly snapshots.

This seriously cuts into development time, and we already have a shorter
releases cycle.

This is one of the reasons it was discussed almost a month or more before the GA of Fedora 11.

Why is that?

To get back on the regular "Halloween/May Day" release schedule. The original alpha (as we used to know it) was dropped by Releng in an effort to add more development time back... this was discussed on fedora-devel.

John
