I realized yesterday that we hadn't ever discussed a release schedule
for the 1.13 X server.
The big blocker for this has been Dave Airlie's massive API/ABI rework
to try and clear the decks for hot-plug GPUs and other new stuff. That's
landing today, and so it seems like a good time to figure out the rest
of the schedule.
1.12 was released on the 4th of March; six months past that would be the
4th of September (2012-9-4). That seems like a reasonable target to me,
but does mean that our usual three month of release freeze would be
Given the amount of change seen in the last two freeze periods, I think
we can safely shorten them both and give ourselves another month to
clean up from the API changes just landing. Here's my suggestion:
Merge window closes: 2012-7-4
Non-critical bug window closes: 2012-8-4
1.13 release: 2012-9-4
Comments and other schedule suggestions are welcome. In particular I
think we can shorten the merge window by a couple of weeks if that would
make people more comfortable. If there are schedule conflicts with other
major projects, we can take those into account as well.
