h2. XAPI Project Roadmap

h3. Roadmap

This roadmap is a list of high-level releases related to the Xapi Project. Xapi development itself will follow a two-week sprint cycle, inside of a quarterly "train" cycle (trains are like sprints-of-sprints). Each sprint may accomplish individual bug fixes and new features, while with each train we will attempt to introduce larger, more meaningful sets of features.

At the end of every sprint, we'll bump the micro version number of the xen-api source repo, and will update the changelog with bug fixes and new features. Every quarter, at the end of each train, we'll bump the minor version to indicate the large new feature sets which should by then be stable. Sprints and trains themselves will be named for the calendar week on which they finish; sprints will begin on a Wednesday and end on a Tuesday.

We will populate this roadmap with information on upcoming sprint finish dates, and upcoming train finish dates, with a short explanation of the things we wish to accomplish in each.
