(Please reply only to debian-boot; reply-to set accordingly; add other recipients only selectively) Another week gone by, another update. Unfortunately I made a mistake interpreting a message from Joey and thought we'd have to wait for builds and migration of a new directfb with some reverse dependencies. Only today I realized this is not the case. Ah, well, d-i's build system remains a complex beast. Anyway, the last week has still been spent fairly productively. Some more quite annoying bugs relevant for the release were found and some additional tuning of debian-cd was needed so that the desktop task and other tasks would be installable again from full CD images. Today the last two udebs needed to do the final upload of the installer should migrate to testing, so the upload will happen soon after the next mirror sync. After that there are still two packages that I'd like to see on the CDs and thus need to migrate before building the CD images for Beta 3: - partman-crypto (9): fixes problems when zeroing a partition - jfsutils (1.1.11-1): currently missing on AMD64 and fixes an RC bug Both are currently missing one or two architectures which have been built but are not yet installed, so hopefully these will be uploaded today. So we end up with the following revised planning: 6 Aug Request urgent hints for remaining packages (after dinstall) 7 Aug Final upload of d-i images 7/8 Aug Final tests as images become available 7-9 Aug Preparation of release notes, errata, website, etc 9 Aug Migration of d-i to testing 9 Aug CD builds 10 Aug Release Testing is still welcome, especially for alpha, arm, m68k, mips, mipsel and powerpc.
