Release 3 Plans

Each of the four CI releases has a specific set of themes that determine the features that are developed in that release, and which cumulatively result in the final system as envisioned by the OOI project. Each release has a primary theme, which brings particular capabilities to maturity and drives the bulk of activity. Additionally, a release has a set of secondary themes that either complete earlier capabilities or provide foundational work for later releases. User and stakeholder engagement activities and planning are structured around these themes.
