  1. Hi just some quick queries,

    What does the addition of M4 mean from a practical point of view? Are new images still to be branched by the end of M3 as in Honolulu? What can go into M4 now? Is this documented somewhere on this wiki?


    1. The PTLs wanted to see a separation between the completion of code reviews and container delivery.  So, the new M3 will mark the final date for code reviews, while M4 will mark the date for container delivery.  The detailed tasks for M3 will be worked out during Istanbul.  The tasks for the new M4 will largely stay the same as for the current M3.  

      A summary of the release process may be found here:  It still needs to be updated to include the new milestone.

      1. Thanks for that David. I'll keep an eye on that release process page.
