Tips on a Swift Release Review Process
- Prior to sending the release, give the the PR contact a heads up on when to expect it.
- Give the involved parties at least 2 weeks, if possible, to review the draft and include the tentative date of release.
- Set a deadline for revisions and be sure to send friendly reminders along the way.
