+
== Purpose ==
+
The purpose of the KDE Release Team is to define and execute the official software releases of KDE.
+
 
+
The Release Team is responsible for setting release schedules for the official KDE releases. This includes release dates, deadlines for individual release steps and restrictions for code changes.
+
 
+
The Release Team coordinates release dates with the marketing and press efforts of KDE.
+
 
+
== Members ==
+
The Release Team is composed of Module Coordinators, Marketing Team liaison (Jos Poortvliet), and the people who actually do the work of tagging and creating the releases (aacid, tnyblom, winterz).
+
 
+
As is our tradition, decision making is an open and public process and we welcome input from all concerned parties, including our partners, the packagers, and the distros.
+
 
+
== Contact ==
+
Please contact the Release Team by [mailto:release-team@kde.org email] or join our public [https://mail.kde.org/mailman/listinfo/release-team mailing list]. The release-team mailinglist is moderated by Richard Moore (IRC: richmoore) and Dirk Müller (IRC: dirk). They will (need to) approve email sent by people not subscribed. In case they miss something (which can always happen as we're all busy people), please ping them on IRC.
+
 
+
== Activities ==
+
* Make sure KDE is in a releasable state when we release it (this depends of course on the individual modules)
+
* Plan and communicate when KDE releases happen, and intermediate steps to get there (betas, rcs, code freeze and unfreezes)
+
* Providing packagers with sufficient information to package and ship KDE (information about dependencies, for example)
+
* Decide on exemptions for the code freezes (often boils down to granting it if the translation team OKs it)
+
* Collecting the set of features for the next release
+
* Take the final decision if a feature enters the release, or not
+
 
+
== The Release Process ==
+
 
+
* [[Projects/Release_Team/Release_Process_Responsibilities | Release Process Responsibilities]]
+
* The old [[Projects/Release_Team/Release_Process | Release Process]] page
+
 
+
== Module Coordinators ==
+
=== Functions ===
+
Module coordinators perform the following duties:
+
* primary point of contact for the Release Team concerning issues with the module
+
* help determine release schedules
+
* communicate release schedules with the module developers
+
* provide feedback from developers to the Release Team
+
* review new applications for inclusion in the module
+
* review old, unmaintained applications for removal from the modules and help find new maintainers
+
* review external dependencies for the module
+
* help set and review goals for major and feature releases
+
* help with release preparation (eg. update application version numbers)
+
