Release Planning

The GNOME Release Team helps to coordinate the GNOME release process, mainly by creating a 6-monthly release schedule, and keeping everyone informed about the various stages of that schedule. We work for the developer community, helping everyone to work together and make progress. We try not to get in the way.

The Release Team is a committee of the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors. It is tasked with determining what constitutes official GNOME software.

We've tried to write down what we consider our mission, here.
