Good news and bad news. Bad news first. For some reason XF86Setup is not building (as in not building *at all*, not just failing to be moved into the right place for stuffing into a .deb). This causes build failure of the xserver-vga16 package. All the other standard i386 .debs are on master in /debian2/tmp/xfree86 , for those developers who need them or just can't wait. These are "unofficial" -1's, so it's your responsibility to install the real -1's over them when they materialize. I am investigating this difficulty and once I think I've solved it, I will start building again. The good news is that a total of 16 bugs, all of critical, grave, or important severity, will be fixed with this release. Three important bugs remain outstanding: 19815, 19442, and 16636. Any insanely altruistic people who'd like to look into these, please do, otherwise I'll get to them once -1 is done. Sorry for the delay. A build/crash/start-over cycle of time of between two and two and a half hours is not fun, and I don't feel good about hitting master's drives so hard. On the bright side, I can only get better at wrestling this monster. -- G.
