Feedback form is now closed.
This session will cover a lessons learned of the last few releases as well as point releases.

We will specifcally look at
a) Verification of Releases: in particular with a view to checking automatically which XSAs have been applied
b) See whether we need to create a Release Checklist and Guide for Release Manager and what should be on it (maybe we can put together a draft)
c) Whether the Release Process prompting for Features works, what we learned from https://xenproject.atlassian.net/secure/RapidBoard.jspa?rapidView=1 & and where to go next
d) For 4.9 the runway for PR was to short - include PR into the Release Checklist/Guide
e) Any other tooling, process related stuff
d) AOB
