Foreman 1.23 schedule and planning



With 1.22.0 coming soon, it’s time to talk about timelines and features for 1.23, since we’re nearly at the half-way point already.

1.22 was branched on April 21st, and to keep up our 3-month release cadence that would mean we should branch for 1.23 on July 21st.
As before, we will be doing a stabilization week prior to branching to ensure we have working nightlies when branching. Larger changes should be merged as early as possible in the release cycle, to ensure enough time to fix bugs prior to branching. As we near the branching date, I will ask your cooperation in focusing more on stabilizing and bug fixing and less on new features.

Proposed schedule for 1.23:

Event Date
1.23 Dev Start April 21st
1.23 Half Way Point June 7th
1.23 Stabilization July 14th
1.23 Branch July 21st
1.23 RC1 July 25th
1.23 RC2 August 7th
1.23.0 August 21st :crossed_fingers:

Like with the previous posts, I’ll make this one a wiki so we can collaborate on the list of features people want to see in this release. Please update the list below with any major changes you plan for this release so everyone is aware of them.
