Meeting minutes from Qt Release Team meeting 4th December 2018
Qt 5.11 status:
- Qt 5.11.3 released today. As agreed earlier it will be the last release from Qt 5.11 series.
- '5.11' is closed now (or will be soon; request sent but haven't got confirmation yet)
Qt 5.12 status:
- Qt 5.12.0 release content in place, final packages created and testing mostly done.
- We will release these packages as Qt 5.12.0 Thu 6.12.2018
- There seems to be already more than 500 fixes in '5.12' (including few really urgent ones)
-> We will start preparations for Qt 5.12.1 immediately
* Branching from '5.12' -> '5.12.1' will start immediately after the Qt 5.12.0 release (to be able to get 5.12.1 out early January latest)
Qt 5.13.0 initial schedule:
- Proposal to mailing list sent (https://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/development/2018-November/034389.html), no objections.
- So initial schedule for Qt 5.13.0 will be:
* 25.01.2019: Soft branching from 'dev' to '5.13' starts
* 01.02.2019: Feature Freeze & Finalize branching from 'dev' to '5.13'

[17:07:06] <jaheikki3> We will release these packages as Qt 5.12.0 this Thu (6.12.2018)
[17:07:39] <jaheikki3> There seems to be already more than 500 fixes in '5.12' (including few really urgent ones) -> we should start preparations for Qt 5.12.1 immediately
[17:08:26] <carewolf> sounds good
[17:08:37] <jaheikki3> So let's start branching from '5.12' to '5.12.1' immediately after the release
[17:09:20] <jaheikki3> So with this plan we should be able to get Qt 5.12.1 latest early January
[17:09:21] <carewolf> we are still targetting january I take it
[17:09:29] <carewolf> right
[17:10:02] <jaheikki3> carewolf: yeah. In theory it might happen even before Christmas but most proably there isn't enough time for that
[17:10:18] <carewolf> I wouldn't bet on that
[17:11:14] <jaheikki3> Yeah, but let's see when we are ready
[17:11:37] <jaheikki3> that's all about 5.12 at this time. Any other comments or questions?
[17:12:05] <carewolf> will we be branch qt-next at the same time?
[17:12:27] <frkleint> Huh?
[17:12:52] <carewolf> didn't we talk at the contributor summit to branch for qt6 after 5.12 was released?
[17:13:33] <jaheikki3> carewolf: ? We haven't discussed it at all lately. But yes, I think the plan was to do in ~ January
[17:13:43] <carewolf> ok
[17:14:14] <jaheikki3> Ok, then Qt 5.13.0 initial schedule
[17:14:58] <jaheikki3> I sent proposal to mailing list ~ week ago (https://lists.qt-project.org/pipermail/development/2018-November/034389.html)
