This post clarifies the core release process as outlined by @JamieBennett:
Do we have a group of people from CE defined here we ask or are we doing that at our regular two-week meeting?
@morphis we use the snap-update-verification mailinglist for this right now, however I would prefer if we could use the forum instead.
Depends, there might be things we can’t mention in the public so I would prefer the private ML for CE approvals.
Note that we’ve suggested the CE cert team signs off on core snaps in Beta channel, and the CE QA team will then sign off on core snaps from candidate -> stable. And +1 to Simon’s suggestion to continue using the mailing list for CE approvals.
