[haiku-development] R1/a4 initial planning

Hi,

I made an R1/alpha4 milestone in Trac and assigned the tickets.
The tickets, which were already mentioned, have been updated to it.
 #'s 7707, 8001, 8028, 8318, 8339

Yes (on the assumption Haiku is chosen as a mentoring org).

An early release would allow all prospective students to use the same
version of Haiku. Seeing as that's 4 weeks from now, it does seem too
narrow a window.

How does this schedule sound?
 * branching on March 10th (the second Saturday)
 * freezing the release branch on April 21st (the third Saturday)
 * releasing on May 14th (the second Monday)

Oliver explained this some more on IRC. All pre-built software is
affected, be it gcc2 or gcc4.
And "as a result, they're currently not allocating enough space, which
will overwrite other stuff on the stack/heap"

If an optional package is rebuilt on a nightly image, would it need to
be rebuilt once the release branch is updated with version
information?
