To finalize the release notes for 1.14.0, I think there are just these
three changes to make:
(1) Document the test failures that occur on Windows with links to the
revisions (and/or patches) that fix them. Say that "these issues
are expected to be fixed in the next point release" or something
to that effect.
(2) We haven't come to a formal decision on which minor lines of Py3
we will "promise" to support through the life of 1.14, so I
propose to not make any promises and instead just remove the #TODO
TODO: Describe which minor releases of Python 3.x we plan to
support through the four-year LTS period of Subversion 1.14.
Per recent discussions on the dev@ mailing list, that might be
some form of "rolling" support: In each 1.14.x patch release,
we would make an effort to support the oldest through newest
minor lines of Python 3.x that Python upstream supports at the
time of our release. However, we could drop support for the
oldest one if we have a compelling reason to do so.
Unless the other devs feel that we should state something here,
but if so, then what?
(3) Under "Python 3 support is incomplete" we are linking to a wiki
page "Subversion's Python 3 Support Status" at . That page is
being used by the developers to track the status of each Python
script; it more closely represents trunk than any release. Should
the current state of that page be copied (perhaps formatted
differently) into the release notes to preserve the record of
what's actually in this release?
Am I missing anything?
