Sakai 2.8.0 release date rescheduled


       On behalf of the Release Management Workgroup and the Sakai 2 Technical Coordination Committee  I am writing you to let you know that the Sakai 2.8.0 release date has been pushed back.   This can be traced back  to a scarcity of resources in the Sakai 2 ecosystem that resulted in slipped schedules (ie late beta and release candidate tagging), final hour testing and subsequently, outstanding blockers.  


The anticipated  release date is March 31st with the following milestones. 

*  March 8/9                      Release Candidate 2

* March  22/23                  Release Candidate 3 (as needed)

* March 24-30                   Prep for release

* March 31                          Release


To reach these milestones the following strategy is being employed:

1)   Blocker handling: Continue to triage the blocker list.  If a ticket is not truly a blocker, downgrade it.  In addition there will be regular communication with blocker assignees regarding progress on tickets.

2)  Tagging:  Continue to cut QA tags every two weeks until blockers are eliminated.  If an opportunity exists to cut a QA tag early, do it.  When no blockers exist,  cut an rc tag and prep for release.

3)   Continued testing: Encourage testing but do not allow shortfalls or delays in testing to hold up the release
