Our goal is to have testing happen as much as possible throughout the Sakai version lifecycle (verifying bug fixes in trunk, testing new features, and regression testing the latest release). However, when we are getting close to having a tagged release (e.g. 2.9.0, 2.9.1, 2.9.2, 2.9.3, etc) we specify specific periods of time to test, with a Test plan and focus. We call these testing efforts "Test Fests". We have multiple Test Fests to get out a release. Unless otherwise specified we have one "Test Fest" per phase of the release. For example, we might have several Beta versions of the software before the CLE release team feels confident that it is ready for release. Typically, we then have two or three Release Candidates of the software. A Release Candidate is a version of the software, which if it passes QA testing and Developer scrutiny, will become the next official community release. Each of these Beta releases and Release candidate version candidates is a phase of our Software Release process.
