Current 2.2r2 status
Here's the current status of 2.2r2 release plans, in order of expected
completion, along with those responsible:
- Security updates affecting base packages, Wichert. How long till this
is done? What packages should we be watching for?
- Kernel 2.2.18-pre21 builds (ports who want it). Let me know who wants
this, and when you can get it done. If you do not tell me that your port
needs 2.2.18-pre21 kernel images, then we wont be waiting for it to be
uploaded. Give me a time frame for completion please.
[sparc] Will build, should be done on Nov 22.
- Build of boot-floppies 2.2.1 (port maintainers). WARNING! If you do not
chime in on how long it will take (upon notice of when to begin) to
build the boot-floppies for your arch, like kernel images, we will not
be waiting for your archs boot-floppies upload. Also, if you plan on
upgrading to the above kernel, let Adam know so he can make the changes
to the boot-floppies source.
[sparc] Will build, will take no more than 24 hours
- Rest of securitu updates, Wichert (time frame again please).
- Update packages. This is in a per arch basis, and only if absolutely
essential (this applies to out-of-date packages only). You can update as
needed, but we wont hold back release for non-essential updates, it will
just have to wait for r3.
[sparc] Need to do a binary only gtk upload to fix deps between indep
and arch packages. Will not affect other archs. This is needed
for the openssh security fix to be compiled. [3 days]
This looks like everything. I think we can probably get this completed in
less than two weeks (giving extra time because of US holiday).
