Ticket #1472 (closed task: fixed)
Get out a tagged release
|Reported by:||robe||Owned by:||pramsey|
It seems we are not brave enough to stamp a tagged release as alpha. Not sure why the hesitation. At this point I'll take anything as long as its tagged. Forget about feature freeze, we can keep on making changes till the end and just push anything we don't get to to the next version as long as people have a clear idea of whether they need to dump reload and what things are very stable.
However I am concerned about the number of people who I have come across that are using 2.0 in production. I think we owe it to them for their bravery to at least start getting out some tagged versions so that when it comes time to release 2.0, everyone will know if they need to do a full dump /restore and our dump restore can account for people upgrading from non-production releases.
It will also allow us to stream line the upgrade process a bit by checking version numbers and conditionally put in things we need to be done for one alpha and not another. Which will probably solve strk's issue with aggregates as I do think we should only conditionally drop / create aggregates if needed.
Also doing things like making sure our tar balls etc are in a state where package managers can use them without fuss. Greg Troxel has already started to do this and outlining issues (thanks Greg).
