    v28 v29  
    1 The intention of this page is to classify features and their place with respect to R1.  Once every feature is classified, the releases up to and including R1 can then be scheduled. This schedule will help to serve as inspiration to contribute to features that are required for a particular release.
    21
    3 = Procedure =
     2= About this page =
     3The intention of this page is to organize a vote, similar to wiki:R1/Alpha1Proposals.
     4This vote is about requirements for R1 (Final).
     5Voting in-favor for something means that you want R1 (Final) to be delayed until that and all other voted-for items are addressed.
    46
    5 1. Define the R1 feature set. Features should be organized in three groups:
    6  * must-have features
    7  * nice-to-have features (which shouldn't hold off the release)
    8  * definitely-post-R1 features
     7Once the feature set is voted upon, a preliminary milestone for entering the beta cycles will be created. That preliminary milestone will include only the necessary features.
     8Non-feature issues (such as bugs) will be reviewed as the beta milestone nears completion.
    99
    10 2. Define a rough estimation/schedule for the implementation of the missing features.
     10= Definitions =
     11 must-have:: This item will block the release of R1 (Final).  Depending on what it is, it may also block entering the beta stage.
     12 only-if-ready:: This item will not block the release of R1 (Final) or any earlier releases. These items may be evaluated for inclusion in a particular release.
     13 bundled application::  This includes applications within the project's repository and the graphical applications included as OptionalPackages. Command line applications are not included in this definition.
    1114
    12 3. Create the R1 roadmap. This includes all releases we want to do until R1, tagged with preliminary release dates.
     15----
     16= Proposals for R1 (Final) =
     17In each of the following proposals, enter you name either 'must-have' or 'only-if-ready'.
     18Remember, R1 will certainly include each and every one of the 'must-have' items.
