[VOTE] Martin André for release manager


#1

Hello all,

Since we are really really really close to a stable version of SIP Communicator, I think that times are ripe for starting all the logistics necessary for a release. These include - deciding where to draw the line, which are the issues that need to be resolved for the release, and generally preparing the checklist that we need to complete to get there.

Most open source projects appoint a person that is responsible for synchronizing development and deployment activities when a release is being prepared. Here's how Richard Hall described a release manager on the Felix mailing list:

  "The release manager is the person who is responsible for making sure all of the T's are crossed and all of the I's are dotted when we go to make a release (e.g., making sure we have the appropriate LICENSE and NOTICE everywhere they are supposed to be, tagging the release, signing the release, etc.)."

I would like to propose Martin Andr� for a SIP Communicator release manager. We have been working together for quite a while and I have come to know the meticulous nature of Martin and am confident that he would do a great job. Besides this, Martin, has been affiliated to the project since its very early days and has a great understanding of its goals and ambitions. I have talked to him earlier today and he has agreed to take this responsibility.

I would therefore like to start a vote for appointing Martin as release manager.

[ ] +1: I accept Martin Andr� as Release Manager. Go, Martin, go!
[ ] 0: I don't care who is the Release Manager.
[ ] -1: I do not accept Martin Andr� as Release Manager.

Note: Votes from non-developers (non-binding votes) are encouraged since they show the general opinion of the SIP Communicator community.

Great, I am very glad to see such wide participation. Than you all for
participating in the vote!

Now that this has been settled we can start preparing for the alpha1 release.

Our starting points could be the project roadmap available here:

http://www.sip-communicator.org/index.php/Development/Roadmap

as well as all issues associated with it and available here:

https://sip-communicator.dev.java.net/issues/buglist.cgi?target_milestone=alpha1&component=sip-communicator&issue_status=UNCONFIRMED&issue_status=NEW&issue_status=STARTED&issue_status=REOPENED

I don't think there's any point in setting a fixed deadline. Let's just try to get there as soon as possible.

Cheers
Emil
