Communications Channels and Meetings

Email List Yes, another email list.  The email list is being created for the Rice team to communicate to our (much valued) beta groups as well as being setup as a forum for open communication between all involved, please don’t hesitate to use it.


Yup, another one of these too.  We’ll setup a meeting every other week where the Rice team can give their updates on progress, etc. to the group as well as exchange information with you.  The first one is set for August 1 for the pre-beta testers that have started testing milestone releases already.

Release Schedule


The schedule for the remaining Rice 2.0 Milestones is located here.  As with the Patch/Fix/Update Release (see below) we’ll contact this group letting you know it’s available.

Patch/Fix/Update Releases

We plan on release patch/fix updates between milestones at a yet to be determined time.  A notice will be sent out to the email list noted above after each release is available.


Each team will have an assigned Liaison that they can utilize more directly once the real Beta starts (see Rice 2.0 Schedule).

Submitting Fixes

Trusted Developers who already have access to commit code are free to commit their code fixes back to the base, just be sure to submit a JIRA beforehand (you’ll need to note the JIRA when you submit the fix anyhow, right?) using the extra steps above.

If you’re not on the trusted developers list, please submit a JIRA and attach the patch to the JIRA.  We’ll work with you and your liaison to get the patch contributed.
