> First of all, we will stick to our official release mode (https://www.xfce.org/about/releasemodel) also for this release, which means we will tag each of the three (at least: two) pre-releases - in addition to the 4.13.x devel release tag - in all git repositories that are part of the core (example: xfce-4.14pre1). Hopefully this will make it clear which versions belong to a specific pre-release of 4.14 and will help with testing the platform as a whole.

> After some internal discussions we have come to the following schedule (more details here: https://wiki.xfce.org/releng/4.14/roadmap):
> 19th of May: 4.14-pre1
> 30th of June: 4.14-pre2
> 28th of July: 4.14-pre3 (optional; possibly also 4.14-final)
> 11th of August: 4.14-final
> === How can you help? ===
> If you're a developer it's quite clear: clear your schedule, commit yourself and your code! :)
> In all seriousness: almost anyone can help! We'll try to provide a Docker container of xfce-test (https://github.com/schuellerf/xfce-test) for each of the pre-releases which can help with testing (and reporting bugs), doing translations, screenshots, docs etc.
> Moral support (on IRC or one of the mailing lists) also counts! ;)
