Milestone process

This is a response for not a nice post about quality of NetBeans at nbusers mailing list. I thing that the original post is more misunderstanding and a email from an upset user.
To make some of the things clearer I'd like to describe how we test the Milestones. And how the milestone process should look like. I'm using word "should" because the world isn't perfect...

Milestone process

Let me describe it in words. Release engineers(RE) build the NetBeans builds. When the build is ready quality engineers(QA) start the testing of the milestone. Developer focus on fixing issues during that time. After a time (usually one week) new branch is created. QA identifies show stoppers these are bugs that have to be fixed before the milestone build can be published. When all the show stoppers are fixed the milestone is published and announced to the NetBeans community.
