General Timeline from 100% tested>RC>Stable for release
Was wondering if anyone had a general clue to transition times between these ISO's states?
As seeing Mint 15 KDE 64bit been at 100% tested now for a week. And trying to get a general idea how fast they move to RC and then to Stable for release. As Cinnamon & Mate been stable for 2 weeks now.
Is there any consistent general time elapsed? Or just a When it's ready it's ready kind of thing. .
As far as the main editions, the timeline seems to be 3-4 weeks from testing to RC to final. KDE is a little bit of a different animal, as there historically has been only 1 maintainer of that edition. In the 3-1/2 years I've been using Mint, the KDE edition has always reached final release at about a full month after the main editions. The same applies to Xfce.
