[PROPOSAL] Start process for AOO 4.1.5-RC1

Jim Jagielski
I propose that we, "officially", start the ball
rolling in the process of releasing AOO 4.1.5.

As such, I encourage people to follow and
edit (as needed):

   https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/OOOUSERS/AOO+4.1.5

with the goal of getting a 4.1.5-RC1 out "kinda soon" :)

Are you accepting blockers? My only blocker would be the English
dictionary update https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127621 (a
new version is available and we don't want users to upgrade to 4.1.5 and
receive a message telling them that they should upgrade again to get a
newer dictionary).

We don't have a 4.1.5 blocker flag in Bugzilla, but I guess we can do
without it if this is the only extra fix we will include - dictionary
updates are routine. Of course, if the dictionary update is deemed not
to be important we can skip it too.

Regards,
   Andrea.

Sounds good!

But before we think of an RC we must not forget this issue:

 - In openoffice.lst the update URL must point to 415:
   https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127552#c3

thanks for the reminder. Now we have 4.1.5 blocker flag.

IMHO it's better than to work with exceptions that only live in mailing
lists or in worst case only in our heads. ;-)

We have a process which was working good in the past, so let's use it.
Then it's also easier to tracker the real changes and document them in
the Release Notes.

English dictionaries has an updated release every month, but extensions
for AOo and LibO are only released every two months, unless there has
been a recent release, in which case the update extension release is
skipped.

In other words

English Dictionaries 2.55 was released on the first of December.

* No extension for LibO or AOo of English Dictionaries 2.55 will be
released.

*  English Dictionaries 2.56 will be released on the first of January 2018.
* An extension of English Dictionaries 2.56 will not be released for LibO;
* Unless an update of AOo is released in either December, or early
January, an extension of English Dictionaries 2.56 for AOo will be
released around 4 January 2018.

* English Dictionaries 2.57 will be released on the first of February.
* No extension for LibO or AOo for English Dictionaries 2.57 will be
released.

* English Dictionaries 2.58 will be released on the First of March.
* An extension of English Dictionaries 2.58 for AOo will be released
around 4 March.
* An extension of English Dictionaries 2.58 for LibO will be released
around 4 March.


The rational for skipping extension updates when a new version of LibO
or AOo is released, is to avoid the appearance of the program being
"broken", right after it is installed.

Marcus knows the magic for it. I believe only Bugzilla admins can create
a new flag.

This would be nice in theory. In practice, OpenOffice 4.1.4 was released
mid-October and the dictionary update was published on November 1st:

and the magic goes really scary: The blocker flag is already online. ;-)

Is the group OK w/ me continuing as RM for 4.1.5? I want to
start filling in the above page and maybe start building some
RCs early next week.

Please do. I don't think we have had a new regression report, not tied
to something we are fixing in 4.1.5, for some weeks.

I don't think there will be any objection. Thanks for taking over.

Using the blocker flag, whether issues are considered critical blocker
or not, is the one of the easiest ways to determine specific
items/changes included in a release by querying BZ based on the blocker
flag. Larger considerations/changes, like build changes and updates to
external sources/libraries, aren't tagged this way, but they could be --
for easier record keeping.

Hi Jim,

All 415 buildbots finished successfully with Rev. 1817496.

I think this is the revision for RC1?

Regards, Matthias

Yep, that's the rev.

macOS builds being uploaded to the dev area as we speak...
Linux 64bit builds being, well, built ;)
