Summary of progress and current meeting on irc: - We were slow defining 1.5.1 and 1.5.2 so Mathieu moved onto fixing TODOs and basic Windows support, so 1.4 was enlarged, - 1.5.1 is not started yet, - 1.5.2 have multithreading, it causes minor problems because processes go in parallel with user activities and may or may not give expected results, - Shinnok considered to not include 1.5 into the release, - Shinnok would like to include his 1.2 and 1.3 into the release but he may be not able to implement them due to his other tasks in the beginning of June. So it is unlikely that the release will be done in time. We discussed that the deviation from proposal is not a problem for Mathieu. I'd like to add: practical results should be delivered some day. Preferably at least one stable release should be done before midterm evaluation. Rearrangements of releases does not seem a problem. But unclear plan of releases seems a problem to me. So I'd like to see a clarification: when the release is planned? What's included? What should Mathieu do after implementation of code for release and before actual release? (Current probable case: the release includes 1.2-1.4 and Mathieu works on 1.5 and 1.6 when he finishes 1.4.) But we don't know how much time the release will take. So it would be safe to put 1 week onto testing, fixing bugs, packaging. Thanks! -- Regards, Aleksey Cherepanov
