A different way of announcing RC releases.
Instead of having a series of topics:
Unraid OS version 6.11.0-rc1 available
Unraid OS version 6.11.0-rc2 available
We'll have a single topic:
Unraid OS version 6.11.0-rc series
And also lock the topic so there can be no direct replies.
When another RC is published, then we will add a post to the topic that specifies the changes vs. the previous RC release. If there are N rc releases there will be N posts in the topic. An exception might occur if another developer wanted to add a post providing more detail for a specific change.
There are two reasons I want to make this change: First is to simplify and streamline my release workflow since we want to move to smaller, more frequent releases.
Second, is to get away from people posting bug reports and other issues right in the release topic. Instead we would like you to post separate reports for bugs and other issues.
Our philosophy up until now has been to make it as easy as possible for someone to give us feedback, hence leaving the release topics open for reply. But this has always been a problem and as the OS becomes more and more complex this is becoming a larger issue.
So let's give this a try. Comments welcome (this topic is not locked LOL).
