This document gives instructions to creation of stable branches from trunk.

Preparations well in advanceEdit

Patches to be applied to TRUNK and new stable branch immediately after branching should be written well in advance. They are submitted to patch tracker as any other patches and are subject to similar scrutiny as any other patch. Most importantly TRUNK patch bumps version number in fc_version, but documents require other changes as well. Things to update do change from release cycle to release cycle, but you should check patch from previous cycle for some reference. Patches for S3_0 branching (task #7972), to start 3.1 cycle, are patch #7760 for TRUNK, and patch #7761 for S3_0.

Announce branching in i18n mailing list so translators can have their say if their translation should not be merged from previous stable branch for some reason.
