Description

Given that we fix bugs faster than we can comfortably tag releases as "stable", maybe we should replace our current release terminology.

Here are some ideas:

  • stable -> frozen
  • development -> current

(stolen from LibreOffice)
- stable -> still
- development -> fresh

History

#1 Updated by delroth over 5 years ago

Disagree that this is a terminology issue. This is a process issue. If someone was willing to cut a release more often and work on fixing the release blockers, we wouldn't be accumulating all these problems.

Note that we're "fixing bugs faster than ..." but also creating tons of new bugs in the process. TFN still has some unfixed regressions, for example.

  • Easy changed from Yes to No

I don't think this should be tagged with Easy. Even if it only is a matter of changing the names, it isn't something that can be done in just a PR.

#3 Updated by phire over 5 years ago

Yeah, I feel like this is a process issue.

Maybe we could implement something halfway between stable and git. Even if it's just "Select the build with the least regressions from last month and call it a 'monthly'"

Good luck figuring out which one is least buggy :P

I really don't think this should block a release, it's not a regression, it's not really a huge problem for users or anything.

Someone else feel free to override me here.
