MediaWiki 1.31 Release notes states that THIS IS NOT A RELEASE YET!
Closed, InvalidPublic


MediaWiki 1.31 has been released some days ago, but the release notes state that this is not a release yet

Looks like the release team that handles the release of new versions didn't follow the Release Checklist thoroughly, because there's an item about Release notes there:

I've added a reminder of the "THIS IS NOT A RELEASE YET!" text on the comments section, just in case, because it's not the first time something like this happens :)

@Ciencia_Al_Poder This is normal. On the 1.31 tag, RELEASE-NOTES-1.31 file doesn't have THIS IS NOT A RELEASE YET!. I guess that the latest commit contains this sentence for 1.31.1.

The issue is that we link to the master version of the "RELEASE-NOTES-1.31" file all over so the end user will always see "THIS IS NOT A RELEASE YET!". Perhaps it is just a matter of creating a better logic by directing the link to the latest release tag of the respective branch to avoid this. Currently this is very confusing what we are doing and this is why this pop up over and over again. Today I needed about half an hour to figure this out after finally waking up. :|

The phrase was removed by 5cfc9accca2c but added back by e7f2209acf7b (which I assume is for 1.31.1).

It is correct that REL1_31 is not a release yet (it will eventually be branched as MW 1.31.1, but right now it's MW 1.31.0 plus four commits that will end up in it:

      - Remove nonfunctional jquery mobile stuff

        Does not appear to work, and is possibly breaking things elsewise as
        well. In particular: chrome text selection in general, possibly iphone

        May or may not resolve the following; please test (does seem to
        effectively resolve T183215, for now, at least, but dunno at all about
        the other two.):

    Bug: T197229
    Change-Id: I6dad2c00c7480894beeaf8979b8d66f4cc32cc89

Quite a lot of links on the branch info pages to the release notes were broken due to different reasons so I just created a template RELEASE-NOTES. If someone has a better solution please go for it.
