Any additional change that the release engineering team feels is justified, given the potential risk.
Shortly after the code freeze is started, a <emphasis>BETA1</emphasis> image is built and released for widespread testing. During the code freeze, at least one beta image or release candidate is released every two weeks until the final release is ready. During the days preceding the final release, the release engineering team is in constant communication with the security-officer team, the documentation maintainers, and the port maintainers to ensure that all of the different components required for a successful release are available.
After the quality of the BETA images is satisfying enough, and no large and potentially risky changes are planned, the release branch is created and <emphasis>Release Candidate</emphasis> (RC) images are built from the release branch, instead of the BETA images from the STABLE branch. Also, the freeze on the STABLE branch is lifted and release branch enters a <quote>hard code freeze</quote> where it becomes much harder to justify new changes to the system unless a serious bug-fix or security issue is involved.
Final Release Checklist
When several BETA images have been made available for widespread testing and all major issues have been resolved, the final release <quote>polishing</quote> can begin.
Creating the Release Branch
In all examples below, <literal>$FSVN</literal> refers to the location of the FreeBSD Subversion repository, <literal>svn+ssh://svn.FreeBSD.org/base/</literal>.
The layout of FreeBSD branches in Subversion is described in the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/committers-guide/subversion-primer.html#subversion-primer-base-layout">Committer's Guide</link>. The first step in creating a branch is to identify the revision of the <literal>stable/<replaceable>X</replaceable></literal> sources that you want to branch <emphasis>from</emphasis>.
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>svn log -v $FSVN/stable/9</userinput>
The next step is to create the <emphasis>release branch</emphasis>
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>svn cp $FSVN/stable/9@REVISION $FSVN/releng/9.2</userinput>
This branch can be checked out:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>svn co $FSVN/releng/9.2 src</userinput>
Creating the <literal>releng</literal> branch and <literal>release</literal> tags is done by the <link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/administration.html#t-re">Release Engineering Team</link>.
