Hi All,

Liferay held its annual East Coast Symposium last week. We had a good turnout and had several community-oriented discussions. Szymon from eo Networks and Artur from Vaadin were chosen as speakers from the community, and gave excellent presentations, and we had thoughtful discussions afterward on a range of topics. One of the things we talked about was getting the community more involved in the upcoming 6.1 CE release, more so than we had for the 6.0.6 CE release.

So to that end I'm going to organize two things in advance of the 6.1 release later this summer -

1. BugSquad - this will be a volunteer effort to get an early copy of 6.1 and root out bugs (as compared to the latest 6.0 EE release) before ship. Not necessarily fixing said bugs, but finding them and documenting them for the Liferay QA folks triage and potentially fix before ship. Of course any diagnosis and/or fixes are, as always, highly appreciated! This would involve testing the 6.1 CE release candidate vs. the latest 6.0 EE release, documenting any issues (especially in areas where our automated tests are weak or non-existant), and in general keeping our release quality high.

2. Community Verifier Program. I alluded to this in a blog post a while back, and now that the website and JIRA upgrades are complete, we are at a point where we can implement this. This program gives you additional rights in JIRA to join the Liferay engineering team to "clean up" the set of bugs already present in advance of the 6.1 release. The main goal here is to look at existing reported bugs, triage them to determine if it still exists in the latest 6.0 release, and if so, judge whether the severity is accurate, and update the fields (affected version, labels, categorization, description, etc) as necessary. More importantly, if the bug no longer exists, you can recommend closure and update the bug to denote which release it was fixed in (probably 6.0). There will be standardized text to use for various cases that we have developed for use. The JIRA rights are already set up, all we need are volunteers!

If you're interested in participating, please let me know via this thread. This time, instead of prizes, every volunteer will get something, including recognition on the website and elevated JIRA rights for #2 (those rights will extend beyond the 6.1 release!).

What's the difference between the "early copy of 6.1" and the one in the svn trunk?

Would also appreciate if you can set up some planned time schedule for the release.

Not much - but on the day we "cut" a copy of trunk, it becomes the release candidate against which we test, while trunk continues to evolve. So from that point on, the version that is tested by BugSquad is different from trunk.


Would also appreciate if you can set up some planned time schedule for the release.


Yes, this will definitely be done the moment we nail down a final date for getting the release done. But things are still a little "up in the air" due to schedule and resource changes (internally).

Would you be willing and able to assist in either or both of these efforts? Your contributions to date have been very well received (thank you!!) and I think you could really help us get this release out and with better quality.

Hi James,

I offer my help on this, don't mind to be in BugSquad or Community verifier program (I like "digging" in source code so if I could play a role between #1 and #2 it could be perfect).

Great, thanks to all our volunteers so far! I will give it 2 more days, and then we'll have a meeting (most likely over skype) for those that can make it to discuss how we will proceed and get to know each other. I'll take notes (heck I might just record the call). Looking forward to it!

Ok here is who I have so far. I will be setting up a separate forum for these programs and making the initial instructions and such there in the next couple of days.

Keep in mind that the BugSquad is just for 6.1 and ends once it is released (we'll likely have more for future releases!). I guesstimate that the first release candidate will be in late July or early August. More information available as the project progresses.
