VPP 18.10 RC1 milestone is complete!

Marco Varlese <mvarlese@...>

Dear all,

The VPP 18.10 RC1 milestone is complete.

The VPP 18.10 release branch (stable/1810) has been created, along with the
associated nexus and packagecloud repo's.

VPP master branch is now open for all patches slated for VPP 19.01 (and beyond).
VPP stable/1810 is open for bug-fix patches only.

Per the standard process, all bug fixes to the stable branch should follow the
best practices:
1) All bug fixes must be double-committed to the release throttle as well as to
the master branch:
a) Commit first to the release throttle, then "git cherry-pick" into master
b) Manual merges may be required, depending on the degree of divergence
between throttle and master
2) All bug fixes need to have a Jira ticket:
a) Please put Jira IDs into the commit messages.
b) Please use the same Jira ID for both the stable branch and master.

There is one small issue left to be fixed, which is currently affecting the
Nexus repositories hence the uploading of DEBs/RPMs. This should be fixed soon.
On the other hand, packagecloud.io repo is working perfectly

Thanks and regards,
Marco V
