The merge window for SPDK 20.01 release will close by January 24th.
Please ensure all patches you believe should be included in the release are merged to
master branch by this date.
You can do it by adding a hashtag '20.01' in GerritHub on those patches.
The current set of patches that are tagged and need to be reviewed can be seen here:
As with previous release, process used so far for Maintenance releases (ex. 19.10.1) will
be applied to main releases. On January 24th new branch 'v20.01.x' will be
created, and a patch on it will be tagged as release candidate.
Then, on January 31th, a formal release will take place tagging the last patch on the
branch as SPDK 20.01.
Between release candidate and formal release, only critical fixes shall be backported to
the 'v20.01.x' branch.
Development can continue without disruptions on 'master' branch.
