RE: [dtp-pmc] DTP 1.6.1 M1 milestone request

I can already foresee the need to continue deliver bug fixes to the 1.6.1 HEAD stream for the M2 milestone soon after 7/25.  This is to acommodate other adopters' consumption of the M2 build.   So I would like some modification to the steps.  That is after the 7/25 build for 1.6.1 M1, folks can continue to deliver code to HEAD branch for daily M2 build, i.e. does not require approval for "big" need.    If there are critical bugs that need to go into M1 during the 2-week rampdown period, we will branch based on the M1 tagged version for those critical fixes.

So to sum up:

* Using the 7/25 build as the 1.6.1 M1 milestone build and asking folks to not deliver code to the 1.6.1 stream. If it turns out there's a big need to do so, we can branch the 1.6.1 M1 stream and keep developing in HEAD.

* The 1.6.1 M1 build will then be released and available as both download zips and on a corresponding update site on August 7.

* At that time (unless we branched prior), we will branch and open up development again for the 1.6.1 M2 milestone at the end of August.

[dtp-pmc] DTP 1.6.1 M1 milestone request

Dear PMC,

In order to accommodate for IBM's consumption of the DTP 1.6.1 build, we would like the PMC to consider making the 1.6.1 M1 milestone (as described by
http://wiki.eclipse.org/DTP_1.6.1_Schedule_and_Rampdown_Policy) a more stable milestone to be delivered on August 7th with a 2 week rampdown and a corresponding update site.  

While we understand that this might impact the DTP 1.6.1 schedule. we fully thank you for your consideration in helping IBM consume DTP.
