Alpha release coordination / plan

Blog post by stpere on Mon, 2009-04-06 19:03

Greetings, I’m proposing myself as a release coordinator for the upcoming Alpha Release, and here are the highlights of the plan. First, this plan shouldn’t be applied before those conditions are met : the LiveCD works quite good (with no major issues left). My understanding of that topic is that we still need the FS overlay (that allows attributes over iso9660) to support live queries. If there is anything more to add to this point, please comment.
