Hi all,

I totally forgot Ossi's proposal to start using 'soft branching' scheme, see attached mail.

We agreed with Ossi to use this scheme with 5.4.0. That's why '5.4.0' branch is created already now & developers can start using it for changes targeted to Qt5.4.0 release. We will do downmerge from '5.4' to '5.4.0' on Monday 10th November (some time in the morning) so there should be enough time to finalize ongoing changes in '5.4' and start using '5.4.0' for changes targeted to Qt5.4.0 release. So no need to start re-targeting changes to '5.4.0' if you are expecting it to land in '5.4' the next few days...

After Monday morning '5.4' branch will be for changes targeted to Qt5.4.1 release.

'5.4.0' branch is for changes targeted to Qt5.4.0 release. As I wrote, no any nice to have's in '5.4.0'! Like earlier, only qt release team has staging rights in '5.4.0' branch. We will monitor approved changes in that branch & stage clear ones automatically. If there is some uncertainty with change we will contact to owner to agree if change is critical enough to be taken in at this point anymore.

Importance: High


We are planning to branch Qt5.4.0 from '5.4' Monday 10th November. It means:

- '5.4' branch will be temporarily locked 10th November 2014 07:00 CET
* We will wait ongoing integrations to succeed/fail before doing the branch.
* After that time any changes that are required for Qt 5.4.0 needs to be pushed to the '5.4.0' branch. NOTE: No any nice to have's in '5.4.0', only real showstoppers in there!

We will inform when '5.4.0' is available and when '5.4' is open again for changes for Qt5.4.1
