OpenDS switching to bi-weekly builds

For the last year we have generally made pre-packaged OpenDS builds available once a week. There have been a few exceptions, but in general we've had a weekly build schedule. Starting with this week's build (or actually, with last week's lack of a build) we are changing to a bi-weekly (i.e., fortnightly -- once every two weeks, not twice a week) process. The main reason for this is that our QA team has started looking more closely at what goes into these builds and has continued to improve their test coverage. Since at least some of this isn't automated and involves manual testing, reducing the frequency of these QA-tested builds gives them more time to get other stuff done (like writing new automated test cases) in between verifying builds that we want to make public.

So what, if anything, does this change? Not a whole lot. Of course, since they have two weeks of effort instead of one, there will be a larger number of changes from one build to another. But at least for now, where you get the builds (https://opends.dev.java.net/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=5700&expandFolder=5700&folderID=0) won't change and there will still be places that refer to them as "weekly" builds, although we'll probably clean up these references at some point.

If the arrival of the latest OpenDS build is the highlight of your week and you're not sure how you'll be able to handle waiting twice as long between builds, you can always look at our daily builds (http://builds.opends.org/daily-builds/), or you can check out and build the code for yourself whenever you want. But for this week, you should be able to get your fix in a few minutes when we post OpenDS 1.0.0-build003.
