[PHP-DEV] PHP 7.3 Release Manager Selection
April 13, 2018 12:00AM
So, I woke up this morning and looked at my calendar, and I realized
we're less than two months away from a timely release of 7.3.0-alpha1.
This is somewhat awkward as we currently lack named Release Managers
for the 7.3 branch.

As usual, the role calls for two suckers^W volunteers to take on this
task. Whomsoever is elected will be guided and helped by Remi and I,
as well as previous RMs and the excellent documentation in
php-src:README.RELEASE_PROCESS.

Candidates should have a reasonable knowledge of internals (without
necessarily being a C guru), be confident about merging pull requests
without breaking backward compatibility, doing triage for bugs,
liaising with previous release managers, and generally getting the
branch in good shape, as these are among the activities you will be
undertaking as release manager.

Please put your name forward here if you wish to be considered a candidate.
An initial todo page has been added to the wiki and contains
provisional dates for GA and pre-releases.

RMs should also demonstrate excellent attention to detail!

Topic bump as nobody has tossed their hat in yet. There's some time
left before the pre-release cycle starts, but it'd be nice to have
some names before it gets down to the line.

Kalle voluntold Nikita and Christoph, could those two respond with
either "Yeah sure" or "No thanks"?

Well, I'm pretty sure that there are more suitable RMs than myself, and
I'm not fond of committing myself to regular and important voluntary
work for several years, but "yeah sure", if nobody else steps forward,
I'll do my best to serve as one of the PHP 7.3 RMs (I certainly couldn't
do it alone).
