Our release calendar indicates that the process for the 2.7.0 Beam release should start on September 7.
I volunteer to perform this release and propose the following schedule:
- We start triaging issues in JIRA this week.
- I will cut the initial 2.7.0 release branch on September 7.
- After September 7, any blockers will need to be manually cherry-picked into the release branch.
- After tests pass and blockers are fully addressed, I will move on and perform other release tasks.
