Jeff: Weekly releases – new branching approach?

In past projects we have a stable branch and a dev branch. We could release from stable, and fixes can be applied to old branches.

Helps with QA of bugfixes.

Gary, Benji, Matt, Ben: we can get a lot of the advantages on the fly from simply branching from a release tag when we have to.

Gary, Ben: might be different.

Gary: when someone is making a release, only land bug fixes or things behind feature flags?

Benji: Standard practice: We already tag our releases. Whenever you make a bugfix release, make a branch.

All agree that this is sufficient for the biggest issue. Gary will add a card to discuss future release plans/schedule.
