After a version has branched off of main, typically how many alphas+rcs before the .0 release? I’m looking forward to 2.14 with
__defaults__
support.

There's what we say, but best is to see what we do: https://pypi.org/project/pantsbuild.pants/#history

i will likely do a first
2.14.0rc
today

alphas are a new concept, but the choice between
a
and
rc
has of late been about whether any features have been picked
i.e., if a feature (rather than a bugfix) just misses the boat and someone makes a case for picking it, we might do additional
a
releases rather than going to
rc
but yea, “number of rcs” is mostly dependent on 1. how many folks are testing 2. how unstable new features are
there aren’t really any particularly risky features in 2.14, so it will likely be a bit quicker.
relatedly: some release related changes are reviewable: • https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/pull/16808https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/pull/16815https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/pull/16816 …when anyone gets the chance.

Sweet! That’s good news.
