Currently a new RC comes ~3-4 weeks,
so 50 RCs would be like 3-4 years not 100.
But surely this is not what we are aiming for.

how many more RCs

Post by code reader » Wed Oct 15, 2014 6:56 pm

maybe the original question (how many more RCs) is not a very good one - it basically asks you to predict the future, which is not necessarily an easy thing to do.

OTOH, the answer ("as many as required"/"it's ready when it's ready") is also not a very good one - it does not point to any definition of "ready" or "required", and is completely vague.

stating some reasonable criterion might by desirable: surely we don't expect to get to "0 bugs" - this is both unrealistic and unnecessary.
can you guys try to state or outline (even roughly) what is the bar an RC has to reach in order to be considered "GA worthy"?

peace.

sounds fair enough (also gives anyone from the community who wishes to expedite it clear directions: 2 of the 3 are more tech-writing/lawyer tasks than coder tasks).

peace.
