Context and Problem Statement
We want to share the responsibility of release management. Each week of the release, one team member will be responsible for all release-related tasks. This team member will be the release captain.
This document defines and agrees on the responsibilities of said release captain.
Responsibilities of a Release Captain
The release captain is responsible for the content of a release. That means taking appropriate measures to include all necessary fixes and features as well as delivering sane and functional container images. The release captain is also responsible for describing the changes of the new release in the release notes.
The proposed steps are approved and this document can be used as reference.
