Release Candidate process

To OpenLMIS Dev Forum and Product Committee:

Because of bugs and regressions in recent OpenLMIS releases, the core team is expanding the release process to catch and fix issues and put out higher-quality releases. The core team has a proposed Release Candidate process that we plan to use for the upcoming 3.2.1 release in October. The process includes more manual regression testing during a Review Period before a Release Candidate becomes an official release.

The proposed process is available here for review:

(Feel free to reply to this email or use that Confluence Wiki page to leave any feedback. )

Please reply or post feedback by Wednesday, October 5. After incorporating any further feedback, we will move this information from the wiki into the official ReadTheDocs (docs.openlmis.org) documentation.
