This is to notify that we are planning to target the Trusted Firmware-A 2.6 release during the fourth week of Nov 2021 as part of the regular 6 month cadence.
The aim is to consolidate all TF-A work since the 2.5 release. As part of this, a release candidate tag will be created and release activities will commence from 15th November 2021 across all TF-A repositories.
Essentially we will not merge any major enhancements from this date until the release is made.
Please ensure any patches desired to make the 2.6 release are submitted in good time to be complete by 12th November 2021.
Any major enhancement patches still open after that date will not be merged until after the release.
This will involve the various repositories making up the broader TF-A project including the TF-A mainline, TF-A Tests, Hafnium, TF-A CI Scripts and TF-A CI Jobs.
We will endeavour minimise the disruption on patch merging and complete release activities ASAP after we start.
