(better formatting is in link)
Desired behavior (different than current) [need consensus|Mark,...]:
blue-star should be master (trunk = last release plus the latest XML fixes)
Previous release is done and released (i.e. the publication of the release is done).
in XML, locale/path1=x
2 weeks later, after bug fix, still before submission/shakedown starts (ST not open)
XML changed so locale/path1=y
Voters should see blue star on locale/path1=y
y will be the winning vote, since there aren't votes to change
2 weeks later, after bug fix2 (during either Submission or Vetting, nobody has voted)
XML changed so locale/path1=z
Verify that the checkin to SVN and push to server updates the production ST to have locale/path1=z
Voters should see blue star on locale/path1=z (Verify after 3a is fixed)
z will be the winning vote, since there aren't votes to change
ST exported to VXML
(Tom: I think this conflates last-release = star with trunk = svn; ST does use trunk to determine winning sometimes, but that’s not obvious in the interface, bug-fix svn change seems to come out of nowhere)
Work item breakdown
1. Address “Voters should see blue star on locale/path1=y” at start of Shakedown/Submission.
2. Verify that the checkin to SVN and push to server updates the production ST to have locale/path=z
3. Verify Voters should see blue star on locale/path1=z
4. Translation guide update to explain Blue start as last release plus latest XML fixes by TCs.
