release postponed for 3 or 7 days (?!)


in the last IRC meeting (minutes available at 
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Meeting/20071126) we decided to have another 
meeting on monday, the 3rd of december at 19 UTC, if we don't manage to 
release by then.

And unfortunatly currently it looks like we don't manage, as some previously 
unknown bugs were reported to the BTS:

3 unfixed p2 bugs: 

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=1284 - looks like a hardware issue, 
really. I propose downgrading.

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=1285 - needs more input from 
submitter, can probably be fixed by documenting solutions (like adding more 
ram, turning transparency off, etc)

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=1287 - needs more investigation.

and 3 rather important p3 bugs:

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=1258 - seems to be reproducable with 
installing thinclientserver-profile (only) on i386 from dvd. 

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=1267 - i could reproduce it and will 
compare the logs with a successfull install of the same type from the same cd 
image after this mail

http://bugs.skolelinux.no/show_bug.cgi?id=1270 - should be closed (for new 
installations) soon.

So only if we manage to fix/downgrade/document proper workarounds/confirm that 
they are unreproducable these bugs within the next 24h, we might release 
before monday 19 UTC ;-)

But I think it's more realistic to assume, that we will take a _little bit_ 
longer. Esp. as we still will need some more time for testing, to see if we 
really fixed them and didnt introduced new ones.

So maybe we will only have a meeting on monday to decide that we fixed all 
bugs, did enough testing and can party^wrelease!

So there is still a _bit_ time to polish the press release at
and a bit less time to work on the documentation at 
http://wiki.skolelinux.no/DebianEdu/Documentation/Etch/ or its translation in
