Edge Resistance and extending deadlines

I guess I don’t blog about anything but the constraints_experiments stuff these days. Oh, well. After I missed the deadline last week, Olav was interested enough in getting edge resistance that he encouraged me to take another week and put off the bugzilla stuff. I did so, and made a lot of progress, but missed that deadline too. So he gave me another week. Hopefully I should finish this time. The basics are in place and part of the edge resistance stuff is working already, so it looks encouraging.

So I really need to finish it this week. Somehow, sometime, I also need to get some usability feedback on certain decisions on the branch, fix up some regressions and other small bugs, and document how the stuff on the branch is structured. Then we can open up testing, get some expert reviews and tests, and then hopefully merge it all to HEAD.

    Huh? What happened to release early and often? Merging branch with HEAD might be bad (because not sure if you can undo that), but why not make a 2.13.x one from that branch? If it compiles, ship it!

    The another week is btw almost up. Taken next week off, will only hack on Bugzilla & sleep until my TODO list is gone (starting Friday of course). After that I will be hunting you down :-)
