Re: upcoming kfreebsd 9
Even during RC series it should stay in experimental.
And with ABI number 0?
IMHO, yes, for experimental it does not matter.
But may be it is time to consider putting into experimental also
I think there should be a clear plan wrt 8.x and 9.x before doing
that. Using 9.x userland in Wheezy might rule out the possibility of
supporting 8.x kernels.
First of all, is it desireable to support two branches? In Squeeze
they weren't, but I think it'd be interesting if they would.
If it is, which combinations are possible and which aren't? Currently
I know that:
- 9.x kernel can be built with 8.x buildutils
- 9.x kernel can run with 8.x userland
But I don't know if the reverse are true.
And that is exactly the reason for having them in experimental
and test possible combination.
In ideal world, wheezy will release with 9.x kernel (and utilities) only,
but it will be capable to run under squeeze 8.1 kernel correctly.
