Re: [release] Aluminum code freeze

Thanh ha <zxiiro@...>

Hi Everyone,

Jenkins jobs have been updated with new silicon jobs that build master and Aluminium jobs are now building stable/aluminium.

At this point patches have been proposed to the master branch of all projects to bump the version for Silicon development ( This is the final thing that needs to be merged then branch cutting is complete. I've opened a ticket with the LF here ( to request super committer permissions on the master branch so we can merge them quickly.

PTLs if your master branch job passes please feel free to merge the version bump patch so that we can move this along.

Hi Everyone,

An update of what's happening now. All of the autorelease managed projects should now have their stable/aluminium branches cut. Jobs are not yet available though so "master" will still run aluminium jobs but master is no Silicon and stable/aluminium does not yet have jobs. This is a work in progress and the jobs should be updated as soon as this patch passes verify and get's merged (

Once that goes through I can run the silicon version bump job to bump all of the master branch versions to the next release and at that point branch cutting will effectively be complete.

I will be submitting updated .gitreview patches to all relevant projects to update their stable/aluminium branches appropriately. I'll update again once this is all complete.

Anil told me via irc that he will take care of Aluminum branch cutting as soon as he starts his new day. Also Thanh is going to start working on it as well

Thank you all

Branching is not a problem, the real work is to update all the jenkins jobs after the branching. Some of them need special adjustments, not easy to automate today.
