This package implements a release management process according to ITSM/ITIL best practices. It provides a status engine for release items and keeps track of status changes.

Release management (RM) is the process of managing software releases. One of the principle goals of RM is to increase IT efficiency and to reduce time and cost when implementation and maintaining software.

Release Items

A "release item" is a ]project-open[ object that has produced changes that need to be released to production. ]po[ supports the following release items:

Release Status Engine

Each release item has to pass through a number of states as it passes through a number of tests towards its release.

The states of the status engine are defined by Intranet Release Status. The default states are defined as below. You can modify the states by editing the "Intranet Release Status" category type.
