I'm about to redesign my DAT deployment schedule. Currently I deploy the DAT without any testing directly to the repositories/clients once a day (just a few hours after the official DAT release timeframe)
Therefore it would be interesting to know how you guys manage the whole DAT deployment process (e.g. usage of Evaluation branch, Alpha-Test clients, delayed download of the DAT file..)
So, what's your setup? Any recommendations/experiences/best practices?
We currently have it setup for 5am, noon, and 4pm. We don't use any testing branch we just let it shoot right to clients. So I'll be interested in hearing what other people have to say as well.
