* Open issues * We need to define a 'production environment'; the 'testing environment' is "running from src/dps8". What should the layout of files be? Local "bin" directory? Install to '/usr/local/bin/'? * Releases: * Emulator Beta 1.0? Release Candidate series? * Emulator 1.0? Release Candidate series? * Multics 12.6 * Define targets Emulator Beta 1 Eb1 Emulator Release 1 Er1 MR12.6 Beta 1 M6b1 MR12.6 Release 1 M6r1 MR12.7 Beta 1 M7b1 MR12.7 Release 1 M7r1 * Emulator * Features idling -- Eb1 * Multics * Operational: PL1 - Eb1, M6b1 BASIC APL COBOL FORTRAN Pascal ALM - Eb1, M6b1 Other languages?

The master branch becomes the Master; checkins to master must have change tracking (bug #, feature request #, etc), and some level of review and signoff. Likewise for the 12.6 release. I think we can evolve into MCRB/ECRB, but laying the process groundwork early is A Good Idea.
