Planning for 2.23 release

it’s 3/18 - according to schedule, release 2.23 is due out 4/18
(cf Should we do a CmdStan 2.22.2 release?)

questions:

@rok_cesnovar @serban-nicusor @Stevo15025 @syclik - thoughts?

Strong yes for me

They are not really bugs but before RStan can switch to stanc3, we need to

  • Generate C++ code for standalone functions
  • Allow for quotation marks around paths to #included Stan files

Given that 4/18 is a Saturday, do we move this to 4/20 or 4/17 (not sure a friday release would be the best tho)?

Strong yes from me also. The question is only 4/10 (Friday) or 4/13 (monday)

On Math its probably all the neg binomial stuff. I didnt follow that PRs closely, @martinmodrak would know more.
I dont think there are any pressing issue on Stan/Cmdstan.

For stanc3 I think these three are the most pressing and hopefully simple:



I have an updated release notes (14 days behind to be exact) for Math ready (for the Release notes PR comments stuff we were discussing but I havent gotten around to yet). Stan/Cmdstan/stanc3 release notes should be easy and short and ready together with the RC release.

The neg. binomial stuff is currently on the back burner due to Covid-related activity which currently feels of higher priority. Quite likely will return to normal in a few days so reasonably likely that I’ll be able to move the neg. binomial stuff over the finish line in time. Everybody stay safe.

I am in. Oh yes, there will be 420 jokes :). @serban-nicusor 4/20 good with you? And 4/13 a release candidate release?

@rok_cesnovar Sounds good to me!
