How does the progression from Beta(s) to RC to release work?

Post by Skorpiius »

Basically, how does the dev team decide when to release a new beta, or an RC..when bug reports slow to a trickle and those reported have all (or mostly) been fixed? Curious about the process.

what I think is first record all the bugs reports and divide these bug reports and distribue to each developvers and try to come up with a soultion.

till today, I would probably think there are more closely to thousands of bug had been reported, that's my guess, haha

by the way, to say one thing that this is a hard work to go over the bugs and try to fix it since a little change may cause another bug , or cause a bug to fail its early fix.

Let the devs fix most of the errors. Then if they feel that it is ready to be in public open to use, that is when it will be RC.
hmm....
