* Release Engineering update (Petr)
+ 3.6.0 update & post-mortem
+ all was quiet until the last two release candidates
+ only panicing at the last minute
+ was timing related / summertime ?
+ first-start / updating bug issue
+ Stephan: bad timing, reported on Linux etc. used
non-released builds between.
+ by chance, Michael fixed the windows build
+ prereg feature only used on Windows, fix for issues
didn't make it into 3.6 from master.
+ systemic problem where people are encouraged to
remove their user-installation vs. moveaside & make
AI: + update QA FAQs / challenge answers to encourage moving
profiles away instead of deleting (Rainer)
+ user installs can have sensitive data though,
care needed - but keep that around.
+ non-upgrades for profiles from dev / intermediate versions
+ removing user-profile inconsistent data hid issues
and hurt testing too
+ Always create code to upgrade / never advise removal
of inconsistent data.
+ Rainer happy to help with profiles.
+ suggest zero tolerance policy for upgrade issues during development
+ could have upgrade tinderbox (Bjoern)
+ be nice to have some unit tests too (Michael)
+ most important thing to get to better tests (Stephan)

+ it ~never works, but put more focus on this
+ the problem was so frequent people got used to it.
+ adopt a near zero tolerance policy for upgrade issues during development
+ bibisect can cause problems (Bjoern)
+ agree - lots of ignoring of profile problems
with WORKSFORME when profiles are removed (Rainer)
+ should not tolerate this.
+ collecting user-configuration - have a script / app to
dump it as a .zip ?
AI: + file an easy-hack to ship a binary to dump it (Petr)
+ 2x days of performance issues on the main website
+ can cause issues
+ missing MSI signatures
+ Andras forgot; normally some RC tester checks/reports that
