Pencils down on September 29 for REL1_34 branching on September 30

Cindy Cicalese
Hello!

We are beginning the process of working on the 1.34.0 release of MediaWiki.
The release is currently scheduled for November 2019.

We anticipate creating the REL1_34 branch on September 30 (aligned with the
final Wikimedia alpha 1.34.0-wmf.25), so we are asking for "pencils down"
on September 29. Once the REL1_34 branch is cut, any patches that need to
get into the release will be in the normal patch master + backport process
until the release in November.

If you have any open Phabricator tasks tagged with mw-1.34-release [0],
please check to see if they are indeed blockers for the release. If not,
please remove the tag from them. Conversely, if there are any blockers that
are not tagged with mw-1.34.release, please tag them.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about this.

Thanks,

Cindy

I have been asked for a clarification of the term "pencils down". It is
meant to indicate that developers would stop working on new features
targeting the MediaWiki 1.34 release. Instead, any new features would
target MediaWiki 1.35 or later, which would happen by continuing to merge
those patches into master. The only work that would continue towards 1.34
would be blockers - critical bug fixes or features close to completion that
need to make it into the release. This would happen by merging those
patches into master and then backporting them to the REL1_34 branch.

Hopefully that clarifies the term without introducing additional confusion,

Cindy
