Re: Freedom vs. Time-based process thread


To try to get this discussion started...

Let's say we modify the process so that blueprints *should* be submitted as
early as possible so that interested outsiders can see what we're working
on, but they *may* be submitted up to the branch freeze.

At branch freeze, any blueprints who don't have code in a branch that the
author thinks is ready to merge to trunk, get taken off the table for this

Now our esteemed Agile advocates can keep working on 3 week cycles, adding
blueprints as they write awesome new features, and we still have a
branch-freeze and feature-freeze period to polish the release.  All the
blueprints that would have been accepted in Thierry's current process are
still accepted, and hey, we even get some more blueprints as a bonus!
 Everybody wins!
