It feels like I'm nagging now, because I think it
is the 3rd time I ask about it.
In the past three months, it appears to me we have not gotten any closer really to
getting MediaWiki 1.16 out of the door. There have been requests to get the FIXMEs in Code
Review done. At that time there were 30 or so. By now there are some 64.
There are about 50 commits every day, and Code Review state changes shows there are fewer
than 10 state changes per day on average.
I know it is more fun to add new stuff, but most of the MediaWiki instances run on stable
MediaWiki "quarterly" releases, of which the last one was r48811 on 30 April
2009, which is a whopping almost over 9 months ago and over 12,000 revs from our current
trunk (r61161). We need to provide them with some of the enormous improvements we have
made since 1.15.
How can we get this MediaWiki 1.16 thing out of a the door and return to a more reliable
"quarterly release" schedule - even if that means only 3 versions a year?
helping/letting tim catch up ont he code reviewing will help.....
He has just recently (read: past week or so) got up to the code
submitted this year, Once he has submitted that and gets a chance to
freeze it, things will go alot faster.
