I wanted to provide another update surrounding KEP #2567 (The Release Cadence KEP). First of all, thank you to everyone who has taken the time to review and provide extensive feedback. We addressed most of the feedback that has been provided and have explicitly added more detail around our communication plans surrounding this change.
The current plan, outlined by the KEP, is to continue the *3* Release Per Cadence that we adopted in an ad hoc manner in 2020. Kubernetes 1.22 and Kubernetes 1.23 will each be approximately 15 weeks, with the following tentative release dates:
Kubernetes 1.22: August 2nd (tentative)
Kubernetes 1.23: December 14th (tentative)
The KEP also includes notional dates for 2022.
At this time, we'd like to invite everyone to provide a final review of the KEP https://github.com/kubernetes/enhancements/pull/2567
ahead of the SIG Release meeting on Tuesday. If you have no additional feedback and would like to lgtm or approve the KEP, feel free to do so ahead of the meeting.
Thank you for your patience as we iterate through this important KEP!
