[17:04:01] <jaheikki3> Let's start from 5.9 beta status:
[17:05:01] <jaheikki3> We should have beta content in place now. All beta blockers should have a fix available
[17:05:34] <jaheikki3> packages are in staging server & under RTA smoke test
[17:05:54] <jaheikki3> If smoke tests are OK we will update packages in the production & run full RTA

[17:08:31] <jaheikki3> Any comments or questions?
[17:08:51] <carewolf> sounds good
[17:08:55] <fkleint> yup
[17:09:02] <fkleint> is the BC test ok?
[17:09:09] <fkleint> or, when is it planned?
[17:09:22] <jaheikki3> fkleint: should be, it is part of CI
[17:09:28] <fkleint> ah,ok
[17:11:04] <jaheikki3> ok, it was all about beta at this time
[17:11:24] <jaheikki3> Then new release process after the beta release:
[17:11:58] <jaheikki3> I sent a proposal to development and releasing MLs ~ week ago, see http://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/development/2017-March/029243.html
[17:12:44] <carewolf> so no binaries for beta2... but still for RC?
[17:13:55] <jaheikki3> carewolf: No, there will be binaries for beta ... beta n
[17:14:01] <jaheikki3> & also for rc
[17:14:25] <carewolf> ah just snapshots gone
[17:14:31] <carewolf> but then new betas to replace them
[17:14:46] <jaheikki3> Yeah
[17:14:56] <fkleint> That is, will there be an online installer for the noncommercial packages,too?
[17:16:12] <jaheikki3> fkleint: yes, it is already available. Everyone can use normal unified online installer to get packages. If you have enterprise account you will get enterprise packages and if not then you will get OS one
[17:17:03] <fkleint> Aha, and the one can continuously update the RCs
[17:17:15] <jaheikki3> yes
[17:17:51] <jaheikki3> here is guide: http://wiki.qt.io/How_to_get_snapshot_via_online_installer
[17:18:04] <fkleint> Aha cool
[17:18:32] <jaheikki3> all betas & rcs will be as an update to existing ones
[17:19:18] <jaheikki3> And as I wrote we will try to release new betas quite reqularly so there should be several betas before official RC
[17:21:36] <jaheikki3> And we will release new betas when enough new content in & packages OK, without asking 'ok' from this meeting. Releasing RC will be agreed in this meeting of course
[17:22:23] <jaheikki3> Any other comments / questions ?
[17:22:24] <carewolf> sounds ok to me
[17:24:15] <jaheikki3> Ok, this was all at this time. Let's have new meeting tue 11th April as planned.
[17:24:24] <jaheikki3> Thanks for your participation! bye
