bradleyfalzon 2017-08-17 02:30:33 @douglarek i had the same question, so looked at the history of how long releases spent in beta/rc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1754T8Y3bpaBXvZzNFBfVpnAWfvOcDukqMTiUEYIl074/edit#gid=1455644644
marwan91 2017-08-17 02:31:08 this could be relevant https://www.meetup.com/golang-syd/events/241998623/
douglarek 2017-08-17 02:31:20 Go 1.7 is 2016.8.15 @marwan91 thanks
dfc 2017-08-17 02:44:49 @bradleyfalzon the release cycle rule say we release feb1 and aug1 I'd say it'll be sometime next week, us time in the last 5 releases, we've missed that date every time
bradleyfalzon 2017-08-17 02:48:48 yeah i'm aware of the release cycle docs, but the answer is usually "when it's ready"
douglarek 2017-08-17 03:04:13 lol; when it's ready is really right nonsense
dominikh 2017-08-17 03:06:08 yeah, there's a fixed date, and on that date they'll upload whatever they currently have and call it Go 1.9. if it doesn't work, well, Go 1.10 won't take too long.
mdlayher 2017-08-17 03:11:22 Of course you've all been running the release candidates in production, right? :troll:
mrxinu 2017-08-17 03:11:55 Very nice.
marwan91 2017-08-17 03:12:27 i still need to fix my map[time.Time][]*Orders before i can run 1.9 in production :smile:
mdlayher 2017-08-17 03:13:21 Ooooooooooh. Monotonic time issue? We don't run the RC in production but the tests all pass in the monorepo. Yolo I guess
marwan91 2017-08-17 03:14:15 yep. thank god i attended the forward-compatible Go talk at GopherCon :sweat_smile:
mdlayher 2017-08-17 03:15:16 That sounds rough. Yeah we used to have folks who relied on exact error messages in the standard library which was bad Those break a lot
douglarek 2017-08-17 03:19:14 How can we ensure Go 1.9 is ready enough if no fixed release date ?
kb 2017-08-17 03:19:59 douglarek, Google runs each of the RC's internally. the 1.10 release tree is currently open; patches have been coming in for a while now. another way is you can run the RC's and report if you find errors or issues. that's one way
