2. Status of Release

MK: Done LICENSE files, not doing header text for this release. Lots of different headers from different age files.

DH: Can’t automate easily.

MK: Will be ready to create branches. DH had comment about tags:

DH: Want branch builds running before we create the tags. Module owner does create the tags though. Must start with the first owner.

AJ: Agree we wait for the branch builds to be working, hoping RL will be able to get them going soon. Module owner creates the branch and then edits the branch names into the cloudbees scripts.

Planning Document

DH: Need separate module status tables for each pre1, rc1 and final release.

AJ: Will make copies.

MK: Spreadsheet was more concise. Maybe a separate for each release.

AJ: Ok, maybe not for this release (4.6.0).

AJ: Module Owner tasks:

DH: Still have some pvaPy changes for new RPC: Relies on pvAccess API from 4.6, will need to check versions.

AJ: The PVA_RPC_API_VERSION variable is currently 440 on my 4.6.x build. Hope it happens in time, depends on Ralph.

DH: Feature freeze was 3 weeks ago. Seems a long time in practice.

MK: Let’s just make sure we have a release out by September.

3. AOB

None.
