Q: What is Ramp-down Start (RDS)?
A: That is the time in the process where we start triaging bugs. Normally only P1 and P3 issues are allowed at this point, or bugs that are relatively safe (some late polishing will always happen in the UI).
- All issues triaged
- No more enhancements
- Only P1-P3 bugs (or safe)
- No more dependency changes (third-party, platform version updates etc)
Q: What is Ramp-down Phase 2 RDP2?
A: This is when only critical PRs will be allowed. At this point the project is pretty much done. What is built at RDP2 very rarely differs from what actually gets released in the end.
- Only P1 bugs
- Release Candidate
Q: What is Source Release?
A: This is when we tag the release as done. Downstream vendors can release at their leisure.
