The TOC met today to discuss the status of the 1.1 branch and next steps to take. We decided the following:
1.1 is now frozen to everything except bugfixes. Only fixes to existing code in the 1.1 branch will be allowed in.
In order to enforce the freeze, Josh (duderino) is the release czar and representative of the TOC for 1.1. Any changes to 1.1 MUST be approved by Josh. We will rollback any changes that do not have a comment from Josh signing off.
We will merge 1.1 into master and unfreeze master. The timeline for this is a merge on Monday, and once the merge is complete master will be unfrozen. Any changes to 1.1 that go in after the unfreeze will need to be made to master in addition to 1.1.
There were several PRs in the 1.1 branch that went in that were not targeted at 1.1. Sven, Louis and Josh will be going over the PRs that went into 1.1 branch (and pending PRs on 1.1) and identify PRs that should have been in master and not 1.1, and we will be rolling those back from 1.1 branch after the merge to master. This means that code will live on in master but not 1.1.
Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns, and thank you for helping us to stabilize the 1.1 release!
-Sven, on behalf of the TOC
