[2001-11-29] Freeze Update



Remaining RC base bugs are:

	fdutils 74121 open serious
		Trivial fix. Needs upload today, either MU or NMU (or both).

	gcc-3.0 120452 open serious
		s390 support.
		ia64/mips/mipsel support also needed.
		Chris C. Chimelis will upload soon, hopefully
		[Release will have insonsistent source/binaries if unfixed;
		 gcc-3.0 freeze will be broken if unfixed and maintainer
		 becomes available soon enough; NMUs aren't appropriate]
	gcc-3.0 119386 open serious
		libgcj has a binary. Will be ignored if unfixed.

	openldap2 98039 open serious patch
		Needs upload today, either MU or porter NMU (or both).
	openldap2 112499 open grave
		[security implications] Will be ignored if unfixed.

	slang 115376 open grave
		Maintainer has fix prepared, and will upload hopefully?
		-utf8 binary will be removed if unfixed

	pcmcia-cs 97188 open grave
	pcmcia-cs 98290 open grave
	pcmcia-cs 109903 open grave
	pcmcia-cs 110719 open grave sid woody
		Problems with -2.2.19 modules. woody kernel should be 2.2.20
		PCMCIA / kernel / -boot maintainers probably need to get
		together and ensure appropriate pcmcia modules are
		available for all architectures. Module packages need to be
		available for the hard boot floppies freeze coming up at the
		end of December.
	pcmcia-cs 119837 open serious
		Will be ignored if unfixed.

	newt 119354 open serious patch
		NMU? Will be ignored if unfixed.

	bash 121167 open critical
		Very vague bug report. Will be ignored.
	gcc-2.96 115978 open critical
		stringstream broken. Will be ignored.

After today, uploads of base packages should *NOT* be made to unstable.

Over the next ten days the last changes to base packages will be accepted
into woody. After Dec 9th, no changes (beyond minimal security backports,
or incredibly special exceptions) will be made to packages from any of
the following sources:

     aboot            debianutils  groff        ncurses        rp-pppoe
     adduser          dhcp         gzip         net-tools      sed
     amiga-fdisk      diff         hfsutils     netbase        setserial
     apt              dosfstools   hostname     netkit-base    shadow
     at               dpkg         ifupdown     netkit-telnet  shellutils
     atari-bootstrap  dvhtool      ipchains     newt           silo
     atari-fdisk      e2fsprogs    libcap       nvi            slang
     base-config      ed           libident     openldap2      sparc-utils
     base-files       eject        liblockfile  palo           sysklogd
     base-passwd      exim         lilo         pam            sysvinit
     bash             fdutils      logrotate    pciutils       tar
     bsdmainutils     fileutils    mac-fdisk    pcmcia-cs      tasksel
     console-common   findutils    mailx        pcre3          tcp-wrappers
     console-data     gcc-2.95     makedev      perl           texinfo
     console-tools    gcc-2.96     man-db       popt           textutils
     cpio             gcc-3.0      manpages     powerpc-utils  update
     cron             gdbm         mawk         ppp            util-linux
     cyrus-sasl       gettext      mbr          procps         vmelilo
     db2              glibc        modconf      psmisc         yaboot
     db3              gnu-efi      modutils     quik
     debconf          grep         nano         readline4

Additionally, in the next few days, boot-floppies, standard, and tasks
are expected to get into releaseable state (ie, no RC bugs). After
December 9th, standard packages (or packages in tasks) which've been
dropped from woody won't be reinstated. Please make sure that there's
a releasable version of your package in either woody or sid (or both)
by that date (complies with current policy, builds on all architectures,
doesn't have known RC bugs, has been given a few day's testing to ensure
that if there were some RC bugs that they would be known, etc). Current
standard/task packages (by source) with RC bugs include: boot-floppies,
cxterm, emacs20, gcc-defaults, gnuplot, gpm, isdnutils, junkbuster, mc,
mime-support, openssh, pdl, plotutils, postgresql, pydb, python-extclass,
python-pam.

These deadlines will be tweaked as necessary to accomodate the (still)
forthcoming crypto-in-main transition, but no more than necessary. Fix any
RC bugs you know of *now*.

Cheers,
aj
