|May 19||Final release of |
The Gerrit hackathon is planned during the release week, fully remote and hosted on Discord.
We also encourage all the JGit contributors and committers to join the event.
We will also ask the community members to allocate some of their time during the hackathon to help with finalizing the release:
To expedite reviews of Library-Compliance and frontend changes, we will ask Google to make some members available in the EU time-zone.
NOTE: for all of those who cannot travel there will be a remote collaboration channel where anyone around the world could join the hackathon remotely.
We plan to use the Gatling e2e test framework for Git, developed by GerritForge and Ericsson, to test the stability of the release on a production-like setup on AWS automatically provisioned using the aws-gerrit templates.
GerritForge has also offered its own AWS infrastructure to test the scalability of Gerrit v3.8, particularly with medium to large sized projects and in a multi-primary setup.
Per the support policy mentioned on the project homepage, after 3.8.0 is released 3.5.x will reach end of life and will no longer be actively supported.
Support for 3.6.x and 3.7.x will continue as usual. Users of 3.5.x or earlier are recommended to upgrade to one of these versions.
