shortening release cycles
I really haven't seen any plausible suggestions on shortening the
release cycle. Does anyone have other ideas?
* reorganize the debian archive
problem: no plausible/maintainable schemes yet proposed
* shut down new-maintainer
problem: don't see how it helps anything
* stop accepting new packages until the release manager is happy
about the state of the distribution
-- I think this is the best yet -- basically, an early freeze
with the possibility of unfreezing?
* more active debian QA group
-- Definately would help a lot, but how to recruite people into QA?
* resign ourselves to one release every 8 months to a year and leave
it at that, possibly giving more attention to fixing problems in
I think what we should do is have Richard publicly state he'll start
an early freeze once the boot-floppies is in shape. We are seeing
renewed interest in boot-floppies, although I haven't seen that really
turn into code yet.
