#1480 F24 Schedule
Closed None Opened 6 years ago by jkurik.

Here is a proposal of Fedora 24 schedule. The schedule is not fully finish. I am going to work on it with WGs and teams, to make sure we have all the needed tasks included and properly schedule. However I would like to ask FESCo to go through the major milestones and approve it, as these milestones should not change.

  • we will revisit the schedule next week with the changes in place

    The change was to move the submission deadline to Jan 12th from Dec 29th

The schedule has been adjusted. Check the following links:

I'm a little bit concerned about getting closer to Memorial Day. Releasing that weekend meant zero press for F22.

Related observation -- if we target end of April (or beginning of May) and end of October, that's an even six-month split. If we generally target end of October and end of May, that's 7 months, 5 months. That's not necessarily bad, but if it's what we want to do, we should do it on purpose. (I don't want to accidentally slip into every-cycle-is-actually-7 months.)

  • @Memorial Day: There are two weeks between planned GA date and the Memorial Day. If we slip for one week we are IMO still fine.
  • @7/5 moths cycle: My understanding is that we are still aiming at beginning of May and end of October, however we have the flexibility to shift GA date if we need. I do not think there is an aim to have 7/5 months cycle.

As the reason for delaying F24 GA for two weeks was collision of submission deadline with Christmas time, I prepared a second proposal-schedule having the GA date shifted for one week earlier: [https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-24-2nd-proposal/f-24-key-tasks.html F24 2nd proposal]
So, we have the submission deadline just before Christmas: 2015-Dec-22.

In today's fesco meeting we agreed to F24 schedule will be https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-24/f-24-key-tasks.html (+6,0,0
jkurik will update pages and announce it to devel-announce.
