Release cycles

The release cycles is mainly time driven : a release each 5-7 months. depending on the required volume of work for the respective release

Smaller steps in releases will be more friendly to users as there are no big gaps between releases, easier and more appealing to upgrade. Also, shorter release cycles will make new features available in stable versions much faster.

Next Release Planning

On a new cycle, we will start with a brainstorming on what the next release should contain (or focus on). This will open up the development and roadmap of the project to the entire community ( see 1.9 example )

We will maintain a web page with the TODO features that will be updated (this process is to be continuous); also the items that where address to be documented and listed as new available features.

As the release is time driven, the next release will contain only the features (from TODO list, based on priorities) that can be done in that time frame; the remaining list will be inherited by the next release.

Steps inside a Cycle

  • brainstorming on TODO list
  • estimating the release time (T) based on the volume of work

(between 5-7 months)

  • actual work on implementing the items on TODO list ; it is

critical important to have a better description / documentation / examples on the newly added feature,as this will help people to understand and use them from day 0 (an undocumented super feature is an inexistent feature)

  • SVN freeze (no more new stuff) at T - 1 months ; at this point

the SVN trunk code is moved in a new separate SVN branch (dedicated to that release)-> Release Candidate (or beta release)

  • this will make the trunk free and available for new work in the mean while (we overlap the testing on release N with the start of release N+1)
  • testing, debugging - 1 month -> at T we have the GA release (full stable release)

Version Management

We will have two types of supported OpenSIPS stable releases :

  • long term releases - will be supported for 2 years after it's release
  • standard releases - will be supported for 1 year after it's release

Such a model should maintain a decent balance between getting features out the door and support. People wanting new features can go for the standard releases, and those looking for stability and better support can stick with the long term support releases.

to:
  • Release interval
    • the release cycles is mainly time driven : a release each 5-7 months. Inside that intervals, what date will be is feature driven, depending on the required volume of work.
  • Release Planning
    • open brainstorming on what the next release should contain.
    • compile a TODO list for the next release to fit the time frame; list may be dynamically updated.
    • estimating the release time (T) based on the volume of work (between 5-7 months)
    • actual work on implementing the items on TODO list ; docs must be realtime updated to reflect code changes
    • SVN freeze (no more additions) at T - 1 month ; SVN trunk code is copied in a new separate SVN branch
    • Release Candidate (or beta release)
    • testing, debugging during 1 month (or how long it takes) -> at T we have the General Available (GA) release (full stable release)

Version Management

From maintenances point of, there are two types of releases.

  • long term releases - will be supported for 2 years after it's release
  • standard releases - will be supported up to the next release

The only difference is just for how long they are supported. The releasing process, stability and everything else is the same for all.

This model aims to maintain a decent balance between getting features out the door and supporting the existing release. People wanting new features can go for the standard releases, and those looking for stability and better support can stick with the long term support releases.

Following the 1.9 OpenSIPS release, the release policy has changed, in order to target making the release process :

  • more predictable - everyone should know when and how the next release will be available, so they can rely and sync their own private schedules
  • more transparent - the entire releasing process to be generally known in details, so we can achieve a better collaboration and interfacing between community and developer
