Hey, all. This is the roughly 1-week "pencils
down" warning for the
upcoming MediaWiki 1.35 release branch cut.
The branch cut is scheduled to be made on 14 July 2020 at 02:00 UTC.
(That's late on 13 July in the Americas and parts of the Pacific. Timezones
are like magic, aren't they?)
After that point, new features won't be merged into 1.35; the master branch
will become part of the 1.36 release.
If you have tickets that are tagged for `mw-1.35-release`, please finish
them, untag them, or reach out to get them resolved.*
After the branch cut, bug fixes will be manually ported, but feature

On March 30, we announced that we were
temporarily pushing back the
of MediaWiki 1.35 due to uncertainty resulting
from the COVID-19
We are now ready to begin the process of moving
forward with the release.
The first step is cutting the release branch, REL1_35, which will occur
Monday, July 13.
We will then be in "pencils down" mode: developers will stop targeting
MediaWiki 1.35 for new features. Instead, any new features would continue
to be applied to master and would target MediaWiki 1.36 or later. The
work that would continue towards MediaWIki 1.35
would be blockers -
critical bug fixes or features close to completion that need to make it
into the release. This would happen by merging those patches into master
and then backporting them to the REL1_35 branch.
We anticipate that MediaWiki 1.35 will be released at the beginning of
We appreciate your patience in these difficult times. Wishing you safety
