Subject: Re: Problems and missing features
From: David McIntyre (plugh_at_mudbarn.com)
Date: 2003-11-01


Speaking as a QA engineer, not as a developer for this project, I'd warn
against putting a non-CVS patch into the next "release" code. It just doesn't
have the real-world testing to consider it stable. This is not, however, an
argument against moving talkbox into CVS. That's not one I'm qualified to make
for this project. It would then be in the daily builds.
If a new release is being considered, there should probably be a review of the
available features in CVS and a triage of the ones deemed insufficiently tested
or unstable.
