NetBeans 74 HighResistance

In order to better stabilize 7.4 FCS we will utilize High Resistance (HR) process.

  • HR starts on Sep 2, 2013 at 2pm CEST time in 'all *-main repositories
  • release74 branch is created on Sep 2 after all recent integrations are propagated to releases clone. This branch is used only for HR integrations.
  • When release74 branch is created all *-main repositories are opened for fixes
  • Build from release74 branch is created on daily basis till RC1, then on demand
  • all P1s have to be fixed
  • all P2s reported before cut-off (Aug 29) have to be fixed or waived
  • P2s reported after cut-off are evaluated for stopper status, all stoppers are marked with P1 and fixed into release74, if such P2 is not marked as stopper it's waived for this release
