[Deploying Sakai] CLE Release/Maint Team call: sakai-2.7.2 ticket triage session, Thursday, 5 May, 10AM-12PM, EDT

Tomorrow's call will focus on a review of open 2.x blockers as well as 100+ 2.7-related resolved/closed tickets that have their 2.7.x status set "to merge".  The goal is to identify which fixes are "must haves" for a CLE sakai-2.7.2 maintenance release (links below).

If you have an interest in sakai-2.7 and can parse a Jira ticket quickly, assessing the technical, accessibility or i18n implications it represents for 2.7.x/2.7.2, please consider participating in this call.

During the call I suggest we identify resource needs required to help put out this release as well as attempt to derive a strawman release schedule for 2.7.2 based on available as well as anticipated commitments.  I expect we will require assistance in the following areas:

Development: bug fixing *[1]
Quality assurance: testing and verification of fixes
Branch management: reviewing and merging fixes to 2.7.x
Documentation: updating release notes
MySQL/Oracle/Db2 conversion script review and testing

*[1] I have not seen any proposals for back porting new features of a minor nature to 2.7.x.  At present I am working under the assumption that 2.7.2 is a pure bug fix release.

The timing and scope of this maintenance release is highly dependent on active community participation.  If you run a version of sakai-2.7 or hope to adopt or upgrade to sakai-2.7.2 I encourage you to get involved in the work required to produce the release.  Feel free to contact me if you need more info on the skill sets required.
