[Fwd: Final Freeze coming--feature page updates needed]



This email was sent to all individual feature owners. I'm sending it a few other place to keep everyone in the loop and to route around those that have black-listed the feature wrangler's or are waiting for me to send post cards ;-)

If you are depending on information about the features below you may want to set wiki page watches to track changes and updates

Thanks,
John

Hello Feature People  :)

With final development freeze coming on Tuesday, April 8, 2008 (two days
from now in most parts of the world--less in others), sadly this is one
of the last times you'll be able to receive nag mail from me for Fedora
9. ;-)

Final Development Freeze, defined here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/FinalFreezePolicy means
that all features must be at 100% completion by this date.

Yes, we know "this is Fedora" and "stuff is never 100% done" and all the
usual arguments about "what does percentage completion really mean,
etc., etc.", but for the average user and members of the other Fedora
teams it is important and very helpful to make one last update to your
feature page... and for those that will still complain, please make some
constructive suggestions for improving the process and lobby to change
it for Fedora 10 :)  These feature pages are pointed to by a lot by the
press and used by many other teams to turn Fedora into a polished
looking release so your help is greatly needed and appreciated.

You have the distinct privilege of receiving this message because you
are listed as the owner for one or more features that are not listed at
100% completion, though many are very close!

I've received several questions in the past about what to do to bring a
feature page to 100% or what to do if all the advertised things on the
feature page can't be completed in time. Hopefully this helps...

1) If you implemented all of the things described on your feature page
and the package is in rawhide, update to 100%
2) If you DID NOT implement all of the things described on your feature
page
   a) change the feature page to reflect all the things you DID
complete for Fedora 9
   b) make sure the package is in rawhide
   c) update to 100%
   d) if you plan to do more unfinished exciting things in F10 move
them to a new feature page
3) If your feature page will end up being empty or very brief in order
to honestly say it is 100% done it probably should be removed from the
Fedora 9 feature list.  Simply change the category of your feature page
to CategoryProposedFeature (from CategoryAcceptedFedora9) and let me know
4) If this is still confusing, please contact me :)

Thanks for your help,
