Hi, I don't think d-d-a is meant to be used as a forum, but since others are doing so, I guess it's fine if I join. > With these hopefully solid plans in place for the release, we feel the > need to acknowledge that there is an ongoing vote whose outcome could > potentially disrupt them. Luk is referring to 11 bugs in linux-2.6 which all have a 'patch' tag, and which the maintainers have been ignoring so far. Option 1 wouldn't cause any "disruption" to the release process, other than moving support for these chips to non-free when the patches are applied. Any other delay is self-imposed. http://bugs.debian.org/494007 http://bugs.debian.org/494009 http://bugs.debian.org/494010 http://bugs.debian.org/494308 http://bugs.debian.org/501152 http://bugs.debian.org/501153 http://bugs.debian.org/502663 http://bugs.debian.org/502665 http://bugs.debian.org/502666 http://bugs.debian.org/502667 http://bugs.debian.org/502669 I hope this helps everyone pick the options they feel most comfortable with.
