#1567 Change process - proposal of two new milestones
Closed None Opened 6 years ago by jkurik.

Hi FESCo,

I would like to propose two new milestones to the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Policy Change process]. Both proposed milestones bellow were originally proposed by [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ausil Ausil] and discussed with PgM.

== Change Checkpoint: Proposals requiring mass rebuild submission deadline ==
During the Change submission phase of Fedora 24 we were facing an issue of early identification of Changes requiring mass rebuild which leaded to pressure on Release engineering team and rescheduling of the release. To avoid this issue happen again I would like to propose a new milestone "Change Checkpoint: Proposals requiring mass rebuild submission deadline" as part of the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Policy Change process].

This milestone should be scheduled four weeks before mass rebuild. The mass rebuild should typically start on Friday at the same week as "Change Checkpoint: Proposal submission deadline (System Wide Changes)" milestone.

This should give us enough time to make a decision whether mass rebuild is needed or not. Changes proposed once this deadline is passed should be re-planned to a next Fedora release (after a discussion on FESCo meeting).

== "Change Checkpoint: Proposal submission deadline (Self contained Changes)" ==
Currently we have a submission deadline for System wide Changes only. To make the process more defined I would like to propose also a deadline for Self Contained Changes. This deadline should be scheduled one week before "Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable)" milestone.


I am good with both proposals

I'm good with both also, with the condition that the mass-rebuild deadline should also come with at least a one-week advance reminder to the devel-announce@ list.
