>> as I'm a little lost on Pharo 1.2 (1.2.1 full was announced but I haven't seen 1.2.0, no big party, no 1 million download contest, BBC announcement... :) I wonder how we can improve the process for 1.3.
> Yes, that is why I did not want to decouple the release of Core from Full. Because is drags out the release so far that we can not announce it
> But we could not, as people (inkluding those maintaining packages of Full) only look at released core images...
> And so I did a Core 1.2. And people looked at it. Finally. So I did a 1.2.1, and only after releasing that, people looked at it,
This is not your fault.
> so I even started
> a 1.2.2 today.. and now I am dead.
Let 1.2.2 for in a couple of months.
>> I'm thinking about:
>> - not starting Pharo 1.4 too soon as I feel it will steal energy from Pharo 1.3.
>> - freezing early to have shorter release and have less stuff to fix with maximum energy (it seems energy go down quickly in the fixing period)
>> - a failing test should be highest priority: it's easier to fix a broken feature/test as soon as it appears
>> - one guy should drive the release (I feel that Mariano did this for Pharo 1.1 and we know who we should talk to).
> - Get rid of the Core/Full image destinction. This does not work. And I will not do a release with having two images again... it never worked, and it will never work.
Yes we are working on that.
The missing pieces of the puzzle are coming along.
