The number of new features/stories were limited. Upgrade testing needed to be done manually and automation needed to be updated due to some issues found. Automated tests have increased from 432 in 2.10 to 472 in 2.11 . The jobs were run nightly on EL6, EL7 , Fedora 23 and Fedora 24. Jenkins Jobs were set to run on master before beta builds. As a result, the beta produced were stable. Manual testing was limited to the scenarios that do not yet have pulp smash tests. All the new features have been added to pulp-smash backlog to automate or already automated.

Pulp QE team approves the release of the 2.11 RC to GA.
