After a month-long Community QA, we are getting ready to deploy Drupal.org D7 upgrade. During the last couple of weeks we were limiting the number of ‘to-do before launch’ issues to those that are absolutely essential. Currently our launch blocker list consists of the 12 open issues.
We took a look at the upcoming Drupal events to find a quiet week, which won’t interfere with major camps and sprints, and..
If by Monday, 28 of October, launch blocker issue is down to 0, we plan to deploy the Drupal.org D7 upgrade on Thursday, 31 of October.
If by Monday, 28 of October, the launch blocker issue count is higher than 0, we will have to postpone deployment for a few weeks.
What will the launch look like?
Drupal.org will be down for approximately 24 hours during deployment. It will be replaced by a static page with a download link for the latest Drupal release available. Sub-sites will stay online, but with user logins disabled. We realize this will be a significant inconvenience for users who rely on Drupal.org, and will try to bring it up as soon as possible.
