So I'm not sure I'm following this new procedure.
So for existing blueprints, you want a headline/acceptance line for each
So you're looking for something like:
Work items for 11.09:
Released updated linaro-android kernel for 11.09 and researched earlysuspend requirements for omap3
When Linaro-Android 11.09 kernel is available.
[jstultz] Research whats needed for enabling EARLYSUSPEND on omap3: TODO
[jstultz] Generate & release 11.09 initial 3.0 linaro-android merge tree: TODO
[jstultz] Generate & release 11.09 freeze 3.0 linaro-android merge tree: TODO
[jstultz] Generate & release 11.09 final 3.0 linaro-android merge tree: TODO
Work items for 11.10:
Is that right?
o How do we describe work done in a month that might arrive in a
following month? It seems confusing as the acceptance criteria might be
for work from a previous month. Or you might not match the acceptance
criteria within the month (ie: when items slip out to the next month).
o What is the acceptance criteria actually used for? I get headline will
be sent out with the release announcement, but its unclear who vets that
the acceptance criteria is met, and what that means for the release.
