Maintenance of Eight

The current focus of development is 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 Eight and Nine
  2. a bugfix or a new feature is not relevant for Nine any more

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

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

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

(Please check release notes for the version in development)
