Development notes by release
As part of the formal development strategy at WormBase, software freezes occur on the Wednesday before the release of each new database. This corresponds with the CSHL WormBase conference call.
For a new feature to enter production, developers must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by the software freeze deadline briefly describing the new feature and any new module or database requirements. This section collates those notes for easy access
