I've just updated the milestone planning for 2.0.0, adding goals and
tagging issues. There is also a tentative date of end of the year.
The goals are (and they are subject to discussion and changes):
1. works under Python 3 (Python 2 support dropped)
2. no regression (works at least as good as rdiff-backup 1.2.8 under
Linux, Windows _64 bits_ and MacOS/X)
3. automated pipeline for easy and stable testing and packaging
All issues are aligned with the goals and have an owner, with the
exception of issue [#82], which requires an owner to develop and test on
MacOS/X else we'll have to remove MacOS from our milestone goals and
Overall, and especially under Windows, we need testers to make sure we
avoided regressions. Please test what you're doing both under 1.2.8 and
1.3.6 or better from master, and create an issue with both logs.
