Post Release Process

The newly established Post Release Process helped the Release Managers as well as all people involved to follow some guidelines after the release, specially the decision sheet offered good support.

  • Important question is: Is the upgrade process broken?
  • The Post Release Channel in Mattermost will be for people involved in the release process (not public), as there might be security relevant information.
  • We will inform in the Mattermost “Town Square” what is going on, so we can point people inside the community to one place.
  • For manual testing, within the team we will assign people to test on specific php versions.
  • More ATT
  • We will create a list of past Joomla releases and research about the post release problems → learn for the future, improve our current process
  • We will use the post release process starting latest with RC1 of a new version, better with Beta versions.
