Some time ago John Paul Adrian Glaubitz proposed to take a different approach on how we handle release architectures by migrating to a tier system. I’d like to think about what would be needed to achieve that, as I believe it would make the Release Architecture Qualification process less painful. Obvious tools involved are dak and britney, which may need changes, but we believe this is more about aligning ideas that technical challenges. I’d like to come up with first draft of a list of (technical) requirements, involved teams and needed alignment.
