Maintenance of wiki:Eight

The current focus of development is wiki:Nine, though there could be some problems found with the current stable version.

There are two major cases that affect how the maintenance takes place:

  1. a bugfix or a new feature affects both wiki:Eight and wiki:Nine
  2. a bugfix or a new feature is not relevant for wiki:Nine any more

In the first case, the change must be first submitted for wiki:Nine and, after it was accepted, backported/adopted for wiki:Eight.

In the second case, the change can be submitted directly for inclusion. There are two known areas where submission for wiki:Nine is not necessary:

  • WebStatus modifications
  • master-side support for old-style source steps
