Re: Release Plans (1999-05-10)



Sorry it took me so long to reply, life decided to give me my yearly
supply of 'fun' in a small amount of time, and I had deleted the
message I was replying to..

I'm also sorry about how I jumped, I over reacted a bit, as I said, this
has been a very interesting week...

Specificly the path issues and the mention of the bug reports..

This gives the impression that you are quite unaware that perl5.005
should have little to no effect on ANY packages which are currently in
use, as perl5.004 will continue to be used by things..

(There are a few minor issues which still need to be worked out, for
instance perl-base and deciding which perl will become essential,
however the basic upgrade path is that NOTHING breaks as perl5.004
continues to be used by things)


As far as the coordinator position, I don't think I'm up to keeping
track of everything, but I would definitely like to stay just a little
off to the side of the middle...

Once again, sorry for snapping at you, hopefully I'll still be living
here tomorrow, and be in a state to do anything..... (Don't ask, unless
you really want a nice long rant about things)
