Release Management

Links to documentation describing important aspects of Sakai's Release Management Processes:

Supported Releases

Support for releases is subject to the availability of community and volunteer resources to effect that support. Generally this will include the current release and prior releases for which there is a sufficiently large community of folks still running a particular release in production.

You are strongly encouraged to use or closely follow the Maintenance Branch for a release when running in production, as the Maintenance Branches provide access to important bug fixes. The project teams producing the fixes provide a minimal level of testing, however, a great deal of community QA is achieved for each fix by relying on the local QA processes of organizations preparing the fixes for deployment to production. (See the Release Practice Guidelines for further information on how and what goes into these branches.)

(For past releases we welcome volunteers from the community who are still using those releases to participate in a branch management team that will carry-on active management for that version, applying bug fixes, etc. If you're interested, please contact Peter A. Knoop.)
