Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-02-04 08:16:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sbennett> Morning all. I'm happy to say that we've bumped the latest release tag of ACS community to 6.1.2-ga. https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-community-packaging/releases/tag/acs-community-packaging-6.1.2-ga

2019-02-04 08:16:44 GMT <alfbot> Title:Release 6.1.2-ga ยท Alfresco/acs-community-packaging ยท GitHub (at github.com)

2019-02-04 08:22:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @sbennett is there release notes saved anywhere, or is it only going to be changelog from now on ?

2019-02-04 08:23:48 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sbennett> We're working on the release notes. The changelog is correct and up to date with the release inclusions.

2019-02-04 08:25:19 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sbennett> @yreg We're looking at how we improve the releases for our community versions. What would you like to see in the release notes?

2019-02-04 08:33:00 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> looking at changelog now, I see it lists all release notes, I would say the release note there looks fine, I just have a preference to separate release notes for the different versions in separate pages, so that it is easy for someone who is looking for notes for a particular release to find it easily and fast, also I would love to have the versioning scheme aligned (or at least the 6.1.2-GA to be added

2019-02-04 08:33:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> alongside 201901-GA)

2019-02-04 08:34:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> It would also be nice to have any operational changes (upgrade notes, infra updates) in a separate list inside the the release notes

2019-02-04 08:35:41 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> Also alfresco used to have all changes since last GA all included in release notes for next GA, so that people who are only opting for GA and not following each and every EA can have an idea on all what have changes in a single location

2019-02-04 08:37:15 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> last but not least, I suppose the jira tickets listed are simply the highlights of the release, and I expect alfresco to have solved far more issues... So it would be nice to provide links to jira queries listing all resolved issues in that line

2019-02-04 08:38:13 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> When I talk about it I realise it can be quite a laborious task, but I guess most of it can be automated ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

2019-02-04 08:39:37 GMT <alfresco-discord> <sbennett> Thank you for the feedback @yreg . I want to make sure that we're putting our effort into the things that make the most difference. As you said, it can be quite a laborious task to complete a full GA release note, and you're also right, a lot of it can be automated!

2019-02-04 08:51:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> @sbennett I remember resplin used to have two drafts of release notes as the work on next version progresses, one for next EA which has exectly all changes from previous release to next EA, and one for GA which is supposed to have all the changes in the line A.B.*, that was nice, and it reduced the time between the actual release and the publishing of release notes (since the release notes were built up

2019-02-04 08:51:10 GMT <alfresco-discord> during the previous sprint(s) as issues get solved

2019-02-04 08:51:51 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> and I used to sneak on the drafts in order to have an idea on what's coming before it actually makes it into a release ๐Ÿ˜›

2019-02-04 08:52:06 GMT <alfresco-discord> <yreg> probably not the only one

2019-02-04 09:10:22 GMT <alfresco-discord> <digcat> @sbennett being able to see what is due to be fixed in the next release is actually a good way to keep people informed, so issues experienced in current version are likely to be resolved in the next, lets people know to be patient if they have hit a particular issue, if they dont see the issue then they know it needs reporting.

2019-02-04 21:17:30 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> @kgastaldo Landed in Stockholm and on the way home right now... Had to fly via Frankfurt since there were no directs from Edinburgh...

2019-02-04 21:18:43 GMT <alfresco-discord> <bhagyas> Hope you got home safe and comfy
