Re: VPP 18.01 Release Milestone RC2 is Wed 1/10/2018

A gentle reminder that VPP 18.01 RC2 is this Wednesday January 10th.

Note: After Wednesday's RC2 Milestone, only critical bug fixes will be merged into stable/1801.  Please review open anomalies for candidates to be fixed this week. Also, please remember to open a Jira ticket for all patches submitted to stable branches.

I'd also like to get all Coverity issues on stable/1801 resolved prior to RC2.  There were only a handful of Coverity warnings open when the branch was created.  See

Just a reminder of VPP 18.01 Release Milestones:

VPP 18.01 RC2 is next Wednesday January 10, 2018.

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