Roadmap Discussion


  • Drop 1.8
  • Remove logos
  • HSM move to 2.5
  • DNE2 move to 2.6
  • Add 2.7 listed as next maintence branch? But release with no features planned yet may not be worth listing.

2.4 Status Update

  • Moderate number of blocks, fixes for majority of blockers in progress
  • Hoping to still tag this month, but a slip of a week or two into May possible
  • Cory mentioned a new potential block, LU-3140
  • Discussion about status of RHEL6.4 support. ldiskfs support for RHEL6.4 landed yesterday, and the rest is imminent. RHEL6.4 kernel bug was allowed to delay landings. There was concern expressed about announcing RHEL6.4 as the officially supported release when support is only going into the branch at this late date.
  • We don't anticipate major disruptions to the test matrix close for future releases, so this concern isn't great; we just want to give organizations enough lead time to complete large scale test ahead of release candidates.
  • The 2.4 page at states that the "planned test matrix" is "RHEL 6.x, CentOS 6.x". When 2.4 releases, this page will be updated to indicate the tested matrix.

LUG2013 Topics

  • Mention that we will discuss OS support roadmap
  • John Carrier - Mentioned that folks working on the TWG RFP need to reply in the affermative if they plan to be on the RFP committee.


We went into a discussion about tracking issues against releases in jira, partial motivated by Chris's email about his understanding of the correct use of the "Fix Version/s" field. Lots of opinions on this one. We are going to table the discussion until after the 2.4 release, because there is to much left to do to make changes now. We will raise the issue again shortly after the 2.4.0 tag so that we can have better procedures in place for the 2.5 development cycle.
